Susan D. Greenbaum, Afro-Cubans in Ybor City: A Centennial History (Tampa: [s.n.], 1986)

Cuban School in Tampa, c. 1950

Strict segregation isolated Afro-Cuban children. They were cut off not only from white Cubans and white Americans, but also from African Americans. Most Afro-Cuban youngsters in Tampa were enrolled in segregated Catholic schools and they thus had little contact with their African-American peers. Only when they went to public high schools were they exposed to black American students.
