Cuba. The name alone evokes a hundred different reactions from
citizens of the United States. Some think of it as a country defined
by the U.S. blockade, or by the Castro regime. Others think of it as

States, but a million miles away in terms of culture, history and

Join City College of San Francisco as we walk the streets of Habana Vieja, and meet with Cuban artists, farmers, intellectuals, musicians and regligious figures. Visit Cuba's museums and cultural institutions. Experience the beat of "rumba" drumming and dance. Travel by bus through Havana Province to experience rural Cuba. Visit Matanzas, known as the "Venice of Cuba" for the seventeen bridges that cross the three rivers that traverse the city, as well as "The Athens of Cuba" for its poets. See the beautiful city of Cienfuegos, whose colonial architecture has made this town a UNESCO site. Lectures and informal discussions will be in English and will take place at cultural centers, museums, historic sites, and during city and provincial tours.
