Abstract

Lydia Cabrera based her long and productive career on the study of Cubans of African descent. Her fascination with the cultural and religious practices, stories, and folktales of fellow Cubans resulted in the publication of numerous books, beginning in the 1930's until shortly before her death in 1991. Writing in many different genres, including fiction, ethnographic description, and what might be called cultural taxonomy, Cabrera's reliance on informants and participant observation revealed at the very least an agility in crossing racial and class boundaries.
