Cuba: My Revolution by Inverna Lockpez, Art by Daniel Haspiel

"I'm always afraid, all the time. All the time."
Inspired by the true events experienced by the author and set in Havana in 1959, C:MR tells the story of 17-year-old Fidel supporter Sonya and her transformation from revolutionary to torture victim to expatriate. Daniel Haspiel's art turns an interesting story into a compelling narrative that effectively depicts the pain of psychological and physical abuse. C:MR would provide authentic ancillary support for anyone studying or interested in the Cuban revolution. Click here to listen to PRI's interview with Ms. Lockpez.Grade 10+
