In this exciting podcast Hibist Kassa is in conversation with Cuban born Pan-African community organiser and writer Lissett Govin Murdoch. At the age of 25 she worked in Venezuela with a collective of Bolevian women within the socialist movement and was also a member of the communist party. Her writing is mainly focussed around the Carribean.
The discussion touches on a number of issues, beginning with a broad overview of Lissett's activism and writing, and moves on to Black Feminism: what it historically meant in Cuba, and the current state of organising in that area. Lissett addresses the kinds of perceptions people on the left tend to have of Cuba and gives more context to paint a more accurate reflection of the status quo.
Hibist Kaasa is a Marxist Feminist activist and scholar. She is part of the United Front Johannesburg committee.
