Sons and Daughters of King David

Religion and Communism are incompatible, both theoretically and practically. Saying this Cuba is know to have a strong following of Catholics and a strong following of the Afro-Caribbean religion Santeria. However, other religions are experiencing a harder time on the island.

Having Jamaica as its closest neighbor one would think that Rastafarianism would have a greater influence in Cuba. The strict control of religious media has meant that smaller religions like Rastafarianism have struggled to find roots. The small community of Cuban Rastas in Havana struggle to gain access to literature, music and other religious related items to help them worship their religion. Due to picking up pirate radio stations from Jamaica at Cuba’s most southerly point Santiago and tourists bringing in what they can of books and music, the small community have managed to create a base in Havana too. This group struggle with prejudice and police harassment but stand strong in their faith.
