The group of Cuban intellectuals said on its Twitter account, in reference to the results of the exchange, that it is a priority for its members to strengthen the cultural movement and its protagonism, without racial prejudice.
Dedicated to the fight against racism and the promotion of the African cultural legacy in the Island, the Aponte Commission has offices in all provinces of the country.
In November 2019, the Cuban government approved the National Program against Racism and Racial Discrimination, which reflects its political will and commitment to building an increasingly fair and inclusive society.
This plan is implemented by a Government Commission headed by Cuban President Miguel Diaz-Canel, and involves 18 agencies of the central State administration and an equal number of civil society organizations.
One of its main objectives is the assessment of the historical, economic, aesthetic, political, social, psychological and cultural factors against the presence of racial discrimination practices in Cuban society today, as well as the strengths and opportunities for their confrontation and definitive elimination.
