Our History is Still Being Written

A part of Chinese emigrant history that is little known is told through interviews with Armando Choy, Gustavo Chui, and Moisés Sío Wong, three Chinese Cubans who became generals in Cuba’s revolution that brought down the Batista dictatorship.

In Our History is Still Being Written: The Story of Three Chinese-Cuban Generals in the Cuban Revolution, published by Pathfinder Press, the three men discuss their roles in the 1959 Cuban revolution. How they helped lead Cuban volunteers in the fight to defeat South African apartheid’s invasion of Angola, the historic place of Chinese immigration to Cuba, the place of Cuba in world politics today, and much more.
