To visit Cuba, ‘education activities’ are key
Metro Boston - 02/17/2017
José Buscaglia, a professor at Northeastern University and co-leader of the its Cuba delegation, said that visiting Cuba can provide a very different experience than what the average person may assume.
“People from the U.S. have a fascination with Cuba that is hard to describe,” he said. “The main idea that Cuba is somehow stuck in a some time warp can be really offensive to most Cubans. They had what they call a revolution that, for good or bad, still lasts to this day. If that’s not trying to change historical time, I don’t know what is.”
Buscaglia has been bringing students to Cuba for more than 20 years.
