With eye on the past, New College professor fosters future exchanges between U.S., Cuba…..

The renewal of full diplomatic relations with Cuba in 2015 caused myriad feelings for Americans and Cubans alike: approval, skepticism, anger, hope.
For Spanish professor Sonia Labrador-Rodriguez, she felt inspiration.

The result of that inspiration is the Cubano-American Community Project, which examines the arrival of Cubans in the West-Central Coast of Florida.
“By facilitating a dialogue about the origin of the presence of Cubans and Cuban-Americans in the Florida West-Central Coast we hope to make a contribution to the understanding of the Cuba-U.S. relations for future social and cultural exchanges,” Labrador-Rodriguez said.
