Perspectives from Havana
in a Year of Covid and Embargo
Like the rest of the world, Havana and Cuba have just completed the first full year of Covid 19. It has done so with the full force of the U.S. embargo on its neck, including additional measures enacted by the Trump administration and so far not modified or removed by the Biden administration. What has Havana been like the past year? What is it like now? What have been the major challenges and achievements?
Please join us to explore these and other questions with leading voices from Cuba.
All events on Tuesdays at 6:00 pm
