Shortly after my arrival in the Spring 2006, the Cuban baseball team returned to Havana from the World baseball championship games in California after coming in second place to Japan. In celebration there was citywide parade and evening of speeches recorded by Granma and other newspapers.

During this visit I met the former Black Panther and hijacker William Brent. I can’t condone how he arrived in Cuba, but the path he took gave him a Bachelors degree from the University of Havana, a career in teaching English to high school students, and an expertise in Cuban slavery.

¿Esta Rojo? is a collaged printing of found historical images and current images from newspapers in the spring of 2006 onto 1980’s Cuban geography text. It was printed at the Taller Nelson Dominguez in Havana, Cuba.
