Fontanilla, Creo que lo major es bscar en otra parte.../I think we should look somewhere else..., 1965

With a growing population of Cuban refugees in the U.S., housing opportunities throughout Florida became scarce in the 1950s and 60s. A 1965 cartoon by Silvio Fontanila, published in Oportunidades, depicts the difficulties experienced by Cubans escaping Fidel Castro’s communist regime as major Florida cities became overcrowded.
