The pageant of 1898
In November 1898 in St. Paul, Minnesota, a group of African Americans staged a remarkable theatrical production. It was a pageant of epic proportions called “Cuba.” It celebrated the independence of Cuba from Spain and raised funds for a local civil rights activist group, the American Law Enforcement League Of Minnesota.
Exploring "Cuba" opens up literally a world of stories, and reveals the power of history to fundamentally change our understanding of both the past and the present.
