Cuba After Castro: A Country in Transition  

Cuba is a nation of paradoxes: a leader in health and education, but with shortages of basic foods and consumer goods; among the highest literacy rates in Latin America, but with constraints on free speech; and magnificent restored colonial architecture side by side with blocks of dilapidated and crumbling apartment buildings. Kept in a time warp for decades by an economic system controlled exclusively by the government, and exacerbated by the U.S. embargo, Cuba is now emerging to allow private businesses, private property ownership, and public internet access. Barry Pell traveled to Cuba in 2000 and returned this year to speak with the Cuban people and observe the changes. In this presentation, accompanied by his photography, he will discuss how its people are embracing and benefitting from the changes while remaining devoted to the nation’s revolutionary ideals and cultural heritage.
