In the United States, people from all different backgrounds live together. More than one in eight people in the United States are Hispanic—but they come from different lands and backgrounds. Many Latino Americans can trace their roots to the island of Cuba. In the second half of the twentieth century, Cubans poured into the United States, and today there are more than one million Cuban Americans. They have built successful communities, families, and businesses—and kept their own culture alive at the same time. Unfortunately, Cuban Americans have also run into hardship and prejudice. Discover Cuban Americans' struggles and their triumphs. Learn about the events that drove so many Cubans to America's shores. Find out how Cuban Americans make America stronger.
