Contents Africans in colonial Cuba -- Rural slave networks and insurgent geographies -- The 1843 rebellions in Matanzas -- To raise a rebellion in Matanzas: the urban connection, 1841-1843 -- And the women also knew: the gendered terrain of insurgency -- The anatomy of a rural movement -- African Cuban sacred traditions and the making of an insurgency.
Summary Envisioning La Escalera - an underground rebel movement largely composed of Africans living on farms and plantations in rural western Cuba - in the larger context of the long emancipation struggle in Cuba, Aisha Finch demonstrates how organised slave resistance became critical to the unraveling not only of slavery but also of colonial systems of power during the nineteenth century.
