Topic: Travel to Cuba As an Educational and Solidarity Experience
Today AfricaNow! explores the various educational and solidarity travel people have pursued to Cuba in midst of over 50 years of U.S. restrictions on such ventures and an economic embargo or blockade on Cuba. Although full diplomatic relations resumed under the Obama administration on July 20, 2015 and there was some ease in travel the relationship was far from normal. The current Trump administration recently placed new changes concerning travel to Cuba to make it more difficult for the average person. Joining AfricaNow! to discuss travel to Cuba as an educational and solidarity experience are: Ms. Lydia Curtis, Founder and Executive Director of Sadiki Educational Safari; Dr. Nubia Kai of the DC Metro Coalition in Solidarity with The Cuban Revolution; and Dr. James Pope, of Winston Salem State University and Executive Producer and Co-Host of AfricaNow!
