Cuba After Castro with Barry Pell

Tuesday, September 24, 2019

Cuba is a nation of paradoxes - leader in health, but with shortages of basic foods; among the highest literacy rates in Latin America, but with constraints on free speech; magnificent restored colonial architecture next to blocks of dilapidated buildings. Kept in a time warp for decades by an economic system controlled by the government, and exacerbated by the United States embargo, Cuba is now emerging to allow private businesses, private property ownership, and public internet access. Barry Pell through his photographs will discuss how its people are embracing and benefitting from the changes, while remaining devoted to the nation’s revolutionary ideals and cultural heritage. This program is supported by a grant from the John and Mary Murphy Educational Foundation.
