As the invisible Berlin Wall across the straits between Cuba and Florida begins to crumble, the more subtle and poetic voices of those who have been experiencing Cuba for a lifetime  — loving, grieving, and dreaming in Cuban — are being shut out. In response, writers Ruth Behar and Richard Blanco joined their minds and hearts to create a blog, “Bridges to/from Cuba: Lifting the Emotional Embargo,” to serve as a forum for sharing their apprehensions and hopes in this new era of U.S.-Cuban relations. Behar and Blanco will be joined by journalist Liz Balmaseda, book artist Rolando Estévez, and historian Orlando García Martínez, for a wide-ranging discussion of a new era of U.S.-Cuban relations and their hopes and dreams for the Cuba of tomorrow.
