Sandy Lillydahl Venceremos Brigade Photograph Collection

Lillydahl, Sandy (photographer)

Oriente Province, with Santiago de Cuba in distance, 1970

"Several Cuban independence campaigns had begun in Oriente, and it was regarded as the most revolutionary province in Cuba. When our buses approached Santiago in the darkening evening, hundreds of people lined the road, carrying lit candles. It was a beautiful and deeply moving experience to ride for over a mile looking at their illuminated faces. The Venceremos Brigade represented their hopes for an end to the embargo, and a more humanely united world."
