"Most people who live in the United States have heard the media and the US government demonize Cuba, its leaders, and its system. However, have you ever wanted to know what Cuba is really like? Author Jason Old decided that listening to the media and US Government about Cuba wasn’t enough, and therefore decided to embark on a life-changing trip to Cuba to see for himself what the real Cuba was like behind the embargo. Prof. Old will share with us details about his travels across Cuba, so that we can get a better sense of the Cuban socialist system, the country’s history, its people and everything else that make this controversial Caribbean country so inspiring for some, yet so despised by others."
