This chapter relates the accounts of elderly Cuban women of street processions that occurred during religious festivals held before the 1959 Revolution, when they carried an effigy of Cuba’s patron saint, Our Lady of Charity of El Cobre, a local advocation of the Virgin Mary, with them through the streets. The importance of streets in Cuban popular culture as a locale of performance that is conducted in its competitive public spaces is followed by a description of the book’s combination of ethnographic and historiographical methods.
