Introduced by Alice Walker and with a preface by Cuban poet Nancy Morejón, this book includes excerpts from diaries and letters from and to children, wives, and parents of the five Cubans imprisoned in the United States for “espionage,” providing a glimpse of how ordinary families strive to maintain connections in extraordinary circumstances.
It also includes a succinct legal analysis of the case by attorney Leonard Weinglass, outlining how it has significantly violated both international law and the US Constitution.
It’s a book about human dignity and hope, with echoes of the Elian González controversy and the Rosenberg case, blurbed by Angela Davis, Nadine Gordimer, and Mumia Abu-Jamal.
