  Experience the vibrant culture of the Republic of Cuba, a country known for its lively music and energetic culture, firsthand during an Institute-sponsored trip to the island this summer July 18 - Aug 1st.

 Dr. Robert Stephens, director of the Institute for African American Studies and a professor of music, and Dr. Rosa Carrasquillo, a research associate with the Institute, and Professor of Latin American History will lead the tour that will focus on Cuba’s culture, history and arts. The mid-summer excursion will include visits to the capital city of Havana, the largest city in the Caribbean; Santiago de Cuba, the country’s second biggest city that’s often referred to as the cradle of the revolution because of the role it played in overthrowing the Batista regime; and Matanzas/Varedero, a region known for its bridge-filled city, the home of the Rumba, and beautiful beach, and Trinidad, the crown jewel of Cuba’s colonial cities.

Call (860) 486-3630 or 486-3082 or email robert.stephens@uconn.edu for more information about what promises to be an unforgettable adventure.
