This chapter examines Cuban-American anthropology, focusing on literature, poetry, and essays as a window into the Cuban and Cuban-American contexts. It explores literature and narrative as sources for a contextual theology and analyses the function of race and religiosity in Cuban and Cuban-American literature, poetry, and narratives. It concludes that a Cuban-American anthropology emerges from specific aesthetic contexts, yet its insights serve the Christian community as a whole.

Keywords: Cuban-American anthropology; literature; poetry; essays; race; religiosity; Christian community; narratives
