Perspectives from Havana in a Year of COVID and Embargo

Tuesdays at 6pm, starting April 13

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 5 leading voices from Cuba.  All events start at 6 pm.

April 13:  From the Perspective of an Economist – Estéban Morales

April 20:  From the Perspective of Science & Healthcare – Luis Montero Cabrera

April 27:  From the Perspective of a Sociologist and Feminist – Marta Nuñez

May 4:  From the Perspective of a Poet and Writer – Nancy Morejón

May 11:  From the Perspective of the Next Generation —  David Faya

Each week will start with a short presentation, followed by plenty of time for questions and dialogue.  The discussion will be moderated by Cole Harrison (Massachusetts Peace Action), Sandra Levinson (Center for Cuban Studies), and Gloria Caballero (Latin American Solidarity Coalition of W. Mass)

I look forward to speaking with you from Havana! ​​​​Merriam Ansara
