Odyssey: Cuba: The Time Is Now

It has been 55 years since the United States imposed an economic embargo against Cuba. Ever since Fidel Castro's overthrow of the Batista regime, Castro's Cuba has been defined by many Americans in black and white terms as a Cold War enemy and repressive regime. Now, as Fidel's brother, Raul, pushes for normalization of diplomatic ties to the U.S. and a lifting of the embargo, Cuba is again in the spotlight, and a new generation of Americans is eager to rediscover America's closet maritime neighbor. What are the distinctive cultural, social, religious, musical, and artistic traditions of Cuba really like? Join us as we explore the real Cuba, long forbidden to and hidden from American eyes.
