Among the nearly 90,000 Cubans who settled in New York City and Miami in the 1940s and 1950s were numerous musicians and entertainers, black and white, who did more than fill dance halls with the rhythms of the rumba, mambo, and cha cha cha. In her history of music and race in midcentury America, Christina D. Abreu argues that these musicians, through their work in music festivals, nightclubs, social clubs, and television and film productions, played central roles in the development of Cuban, Afro-Cuban, Latino, and Afro-Latino identities and communities. Abreu draws from previously untapped oral histories, cultural materials, and Spanish-language media to uncover the lives and broader social and cultural significance of these vibrant performers. Keeping in view the wider context of the domestic and international entertainment industries, Abreu underscores how the racially diverse musicians in her study were also migrants and laborers. Her focus on the Cuban presence in New York City and Miami before the Cuban Revolution of 1959 offers a much needed critique of the post-1959 bias in Cuban American studies as well as insights into important connections between Cuban migration and other twentieth-century Latino migrations.

Lucille Ball has inspired and paved the way for many women in the modern comedy; including Ellen DeGeneres, Tina Fey, Amy Poehler and others. Lucille was one of the first women to run her own production company (Lucille Ball Productions - it came from Desilu Productions). Back in the days interracial dating was still taboo, yet Lucille Ball dated and married the Cuban-born actor, musician, and television producer Desi Arnaz. Lucille Ball was one of the first actresses to work on TV productions while being pregnant. Lucy's pregnancy would imply that sexual intercourse took place between husband and wife. During this era, it would have been offensive to have husband and wife even sleep in the same bed. It's insane. She went even further where Lucy gave birth to her son, Desi Jr. in the episode, “Lucy Goes to The Hospital” - this became a significant part of the American culture, and the episodes concerning Lucy's pregnancy reflected this. More people watched “I Love Lucy” that night than saw Eisenhower’s inauguration as President of the United States. Lucille Ball was not a typical housewife as you probably guessed. Historically speaking, she is the first woman in comedy, in every sense of the word. There were no other women in comedy before her. Lucille created this emerging trend to help other women get involved with comedy. At least the perception of it was still taboo. In this short biography, you are going to gain more insights of who Lucille Ball really was. The woman behind the legendary love story of television's most famous couple: Lucy and Desi. You'll also learn more about her personal life with Desi Arnaz, Gary Morton and her children. Lucille Ball was a very gifted performer and comedian. Nothing she did could ever match the enormity of "I Love Lucy." She left a legacy in a time when there was still so much laughter yet to come.
