ODID_Cover_High

Nancy Stout, author of One Day in December: Celia Sanchez and the Cuban Revolution, a biography of Celia Sánchez, a leading architect of Cuba’s revolution, published by Monthly Review Press with a foreword by Alice Walker.

Celia is a fascinating, complex woman who is not well known in this country.  In Cuba though she is a heroine, credited with being Fidel’s second-in-command, if not his equal. In this interview, Stout tells us about the history of women in Cuba’s wars and provides insight into the mysteries of the Celia-Fidel relationship.
