Hazel Kahan interviews Nancy Stout, author of One Day in December: Celia Sanchez and the Cuban Revolution. This is the only English-language biography of Celia Sanchez, a major figure in Cuba’s history. Although Sanchez is not well known in this country, she was Fidel’s second-in-command and a revolutionary heroine in Cuba where the Sanchez-Castro relationship remains an enduring source of mystery. Author Stout also discusses the crucial role women have played in Cuba’s revolution. Tidings is archived at hazelkahan.com
