Religion in Cuba: from underground to co-existence with the government April 06, 2018
In a new installment of our God and Government series, we visit the country of Cuba to see how it is navigating a changing relationship between church and state. The country has gone from breaking with the Catholic Church following the Cuban revolution, to a careful co-existence between the church and the government in the midst of post-Cold War economic troubles. We also talk with Felix Contreras, the host of NPR’s Alt.Latino about how the spirituality of many Afro Cubans is reflected in the fusion of the practice of Santeria and music.
