Event Description

Learn about the trauma of Cuban exile and the process of Cuban emigration to South Florida as Luis Martínez-Fernández explores the different migratory waves that have occurred since 1959. In a multi-media presentation, Dr. Martinez-Fernandez traces the history of Cuban emigration, attempts by exiles to re-create a Cuban community in Florida, the development of Cuban-American politics, and the evolution of the relationships among groups of Cuban exiles in the United States. Dr. Martínez-Fernández will also be showing Luis Salas's documentary, "Lejos de la Isla", which traces the trajectory of the Cuban exile experience. Born in Havana, Cuba, Dr. Martínez-Fernández grew up in Lima, Peru, and San Juan, Puerto Rico. A graduate of the University of Puerto Rico, he received his Ph.D. from Duke University. Currently a history professor at the University of Central Florida, he has written four books and often serves as an expert in the media on topics pertaining to Hispanic/Latino history and culture. 7-8:30 p.m. Members $10; non-members $20.
