"To Simone de Beauvoir y Jean Paul Sartre, Con la amistad y la admiracion de Cuba y de "Revolucion", Carlos Franqui, Habana de 1 de abril de 1963".

Au début de l'année 1960, quelques mois après la révolution cubaine, Jean-Paul Sartre est invité à se rendre à Cuba par l'écrivain Carlos Franquin alors directeur du journal Revolucion. Despite the bad memory of a trip made ten years earlier, the philosopher, accompanied by Simone de Beauvoir, flies to Havana and stays for a month. They accompany Castro on a 48-hour tour of the island. Castro confides to them "I am a revolutionary by vocation". Back in France, Sartre published a series of 16 articles on the Cuban revolution in France-Soir.
