Please join Harvard alumni María Carla Chicuén, AB'10 and Néstor Carbonell, JD'58 as they discuss how they’re working to build a community to preserve Cuban heritage. Néstor’s book, Why Cuba Matters: New Threats in America's Backyard will also be discussed.
Maria is the Founding Executive Director of CasaCuba at Florida International University (FIU). She has over ten years of professional experience in the fields of higher education and international development. Before joining FIU to lead the efforts to build CasaCuba, she led special projects in the Office of President Eduardo J. Padrón at Miami Dade College, focusing on strategic partnerships and community engagement. Her complete bio can be found here.
Néstor was born and raised in Havana, Cuba. He comes from a prominent Cuban family that left its imprint on the island’s wars of independence and on the foundation and development of the republic. Forced into exile in June 1960 after denouncing the Communist takeover of Cuba, Carbonell played an important role in the resistance and diplomatic fronts of the pro-democracy struggle. His complete bio and book press release can be found here.
