VISITING CUBA by J. Patrick Mahon
5 Sessions, Thursday July 18 – August 15, 1:10 pm - 3:10 pm
Using media, lecture and discussion, the class will focus on: the requirements for US citizens to visit Cuba, the history of Cuba from its “discovery” to the present day, what to see and do in Cuba (Pat will utilize photos he has taken while visiting Cuba.), Hemingway’s Cuba, Cuban song and dance, the American mob in Cuba, Cuban religion and spiritual practices, and Cuba’s emerging economy. Classes will be supplemented by optional readings. I also hope to have a Cuban who now resides in our area speak to the class.
