Seattle: Noche Cubana!
On July 26, 1953, Cuban revolutionaries began a movement which toppled the U.S. backed military dictatorship of Fulgencio Batista. Today, Cuba's revolutionary social progress is an inspiration to poor and oppressed people everywhere who seek to build a better, more just world for all!
Join us in celebrating Cuban culture, history, and its inspiring revolution with homemade Cuban food, music, and poetry from local artists and activists.

It was a triumph for the Cuban people and for poor and oppressed people across the world. Now, Cuba's social progress stands as an inspiration to those who seek to build a better, more just world.
