Cuba in Transition: Impressions and Reflections
by Trip Kennedy
Curiosity about the US media’s transformation of Fidel Castro from hero in 1959 to villain in 1960 sparked an interest in the contradictory narratives about Cuba. A 2010 Havana choir festival provided the catalyst for a month-long, 10 city trip through Cuba, and for the author’s observations of Cuba and thoughts about possible directions for its evolution, fifty-plus years after the Revolution.
