This chapter summarizes the preceding discussions, which showed how African migrants in colonial Cuba, through Abakuá, reorganized their homeland government and passed it onto their offspring in the form of a mutual aid society. Abakuá expanded its urban networks through the interactions of many communities, including African nation-groups, free black artisans, the black and mulatto militias, urban fugitives, and African descendants from Spain. Abakuá groups also functioned as antislavery cells that maintained a sense of morality and history among their communities.
