Bridges to/from Cuba
Saturday, November 21, 2015 @ 9:00 am
300 NE Second Ave., Miami, FL 33132 United States
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.
