As part of the activities to commemorate the 120th anniversary of his birth and the 75th anniversary of his first visit to this South American country, Ediciones Sensemaya publishing house offers readers texts such as “Presencia negra en la cultura cubana,” “De que callada manera” and “Por el mar de las Antillas anda un barco de papel.”
