“In the great tradition of Cuba travelogues, Ghosts of Cuba
is an interracial couple’s sensitive and thoughtful journal of
their travels across the island, where issues of race and gender lie
just below the surface of an ethos of egalitarianism.”

Ghosts of Cuba

is an inquisitive, adventurous, and at times intense journey through photographs and personal dispatches that explore race, sexuality, and politics through the eyes of journalist and poet MacLean Charles Gander (who spent the 1980’s working for Newsweek International and The Nation in Manila) and his wife, writer and photographer, Shanta Lee Gander.
