"What is Cuba Really Like"....FREE Lecture


Lecture at USF by Author Jason Old

Jason Old is a full-time professor of Spanish and Latin American Culture at Southeastern University in Lakeland, Florida. He is also the Executive Director and co-founder of CAN Fútbol Foundation, Inc. (CANFF), a nonprofit sport and development organization that uses soccer as the vehicle to promote education, public health, and community development in the USA and abroad.

"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."


Copies of the book will be available for those interested!
