In this article we analize diferent moments of the relationship of José Lezama Lima with Afro-Cuban culture. From his critical view of the "negrist" poetry in the thirties the poet switch, towards the end of his life, to a symbolic integration of some elements of black and insular culture. In this transition, plays an important role his friendship with Cuban writer and anthropologist Lydia Cabrera. However, the term that gives meaning to this process of cultural incorporation is the baroque.
