ADA FERRER OF NYU ON CUBA: AN AMERICAN HISTORY

In 1961, at the height of the Cold War, the United States severed diplomatic relations with Cuba.

For over five decades, the standoff continued before Barack Obama normalized relations with the island in 2014 only to have the policy reversed by his predecessor.

In her new book Cuba: An American History, historian and the Julius Silver Professor of History and Latin American and Caribbean History at New York University Ada Ferrer examines the island’s past and its relationship with the United States.

Join us for a look at the last 500 years of Cuban history and what it can tell us about the future of diplomacy between the two nations in this installment of Leonard Lopate at Large on WBAI.
