Description

This photograph shows Cuban influence in Miami, specifically here on SW 8th St., part of Little Havana. The nickname comes from the large Cuban population from the 1970s through the 1990s following an influx of Cuban refugee’s and the creation of a Cuban exile community in the neighborhood . In recent years the demographic has shifted toward a Central and South American majority.
