Arnaldo Tamayo-Mendéz, first Cuban in space
Arnoldo Tamayo-Mendez became the first Cuban into space September 18, 1980. He blasted off in Soyuz 38 with fellow cosmonaut Yuri Romanenko and cocked with Salyut 6. After almost 8 days in space, they returned to Earth, making a night landing.
Unfortunately, I couldn't find a video of Mr. Tamayo-Mendez in English.
