Haydee Santamaria: Rebel Lives

$10.00

Haydée Santamaría led a full and painful life. One of a handful of Cuba’s female revolutionary leaders, she suffered torture in Batista’s prisons. After 1959, she established the world-renowned Latin American literary institution, Casa de las Americas. Its director for 20 years, Haydée provided intellectual and physical refuge for artists and writers in exile from Latin American dictatorships.

Among those who pay tribute to Santamaría here are Gabriel García Márquez, Mario Benedetti and Roque Dalton.
