ABSTRACT
This article discusses transculturation and racial discrimination in Cuban literature, particularly in the works of Nicolás Guillén. The Cuban Revolution of 1959 sparked writers' interests, specifically writers of Afro-Cuban descent, in how African culture contributes to the Cuban identity. The article also incorporates these themes into the works of singer-songwriter Pablo Milanés, who was well known for setting the poems of José Martí to music.
