Sancti Spiritus Provincial General Museum recently received a white long-sleeve shirt from Jamaican essayist and professor Keith Ellis, one of the guests attending the international book event in this territory. The guayabera collection owned by Sancti Spiritus’s socio-cultural project La Guayabera has continued to receive donations from Cuban and foreign personalities.
The now 130-garment unique collection, which is kept at the local Provincial General Museum recently received a white long-sleeve shirt from Jamaican essayist and professor Keith Ellis, one of the guests attending the international book fair event in Sancti Spiritus.
The Jamaican visitor, who presented here his latest book about Cuban national poet Nicolas Guillen, explained that he has deeply studied the work of this writer.
He also said that he always dresses himself with guayaberas and that it’s an honour for him to donate one to the project, of which he already knew about.
Another shirt was received from Mexico, from political expert Francisco Saucedo, who currently heads the Tacuba group which encourages solidarity with the Cuban people.
Carlo Figueroa and Helena Farfan, promoters of the project founded more than four years ago, told AIN that they also received a shirt that used to belong to Osvaldo Medina Parra, ex-director of the Rebelde Quintet. The shirt was handed over to the project by Medina’s daughter within the framework of the 54th anniversary of the foundation of Radio Rebelde.
