Our History Is Still Being Written:
The Story of Three Chinese-Cuban Generals in the Cuban Revolution
Panel discussion and film
A little-known but important chapter of Chinese emigrant history is told 
through interviews with Armando Choy, Gustavo Chui, and Moisés Sío Wong, 
three Chinese-Cubans who became generals in Cuba’s revolution.

In Our History Is Still Being Written, Pathfinder Press’s newest title 
(www.pathfinderpress.com <http://www.pathfinderpress.com>), the three 
men discuss their roles in the 1959 Cuban revolution and talk about what 
a revolution can accomplish and Cuba’s role in the world today.
They explain that it was only because of Cuba’s socialist revolution 
that “discrimination—against blacks, against Chinese, against women, 
against the poor—was ended.” And they explain why Cuba’s 
internationalist missions from Angola to Venezuela are an extension of 
that revolutionary course.
