Description
Two audio cassettes. (Copy can be found in S 1576, box 39, tape 31.) Safa was director of the Center of Latin American Studies, 1980-1985. A Columbia University graduate, Safa taught at UF until 1997. She has written extensively about gender and Latin America.

Side 1 (C82-1): Safa discusses "quince" celebrations, godparents, New Year's Traditions, the close relationship between Florida and the Caribbean, the history of Caribbean immigration in the U.S. and Florida; and modern-day Cuban, Haitian, and Puerto-Rican immigration. Also, Safa presents a historical sketch of Caribbean cultures; Chango, Santeria, and Voodoo religions in Caribbean culture. Side 2 (C82-1): Safa discusses cultural assimilation amongst Caribbean immigrants in the U.S.; rites of passage and celebrations used to reaffirm group identity; "Quinces;" the outlawing of Santeria and other religions in Cuba after the revolution; different US immigrant groups' identification with their Caribbean heritages, like in New York and Miami. Side 1 (C82-2): Safa compares Miami's cultural assimilation when compared with countries like China and India; Cuban immigrants in Florida who immigrated to the US before the 1960s, during Battista's governance; studies on the Mariel boatlift; and Cuban Mafia groups who moved to Florida after Castro's takeover and their role in Florida's exile anti-Castro organizations. She also talks about the importance of retaining traditions for immigrants; the political and economic crises in Caribbean countries; and the immigrants' viewpoints on America.
