Lillydahl, Sandy (photographer)

Meriendas: Mary (Cuban member), unidentified Brigade member, Elsie Morales, and Jay on snack break in cane field, 1970

"The red and white tin held squares of sweet cake... Mary was from Havana and had a small daughter whom she visited on weekends. We were each told to bring a metal file to Cuba to use in sharpening our machetes. One by one the files got lost in the fields until Jay possessed the only remaining file in Brigade 6. He kept it strapped to his belt, and we'd take turns sitting next to him to use it. Jay became a father about a year after he returned to the US and named his son Zafra after the cane harvest."
