Welcome - [Plain HTML] Five leading voices from Cuba in a series of 
Tuesday conversations

  *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?
