Building "Bridges to Cuba"

Cuban American writer Ruth Behar and inaugural poet Richard Blanco have launched a project called Bridges to/from Cuba. It’s a forum where Cubans everywhere can share their stories. On the project’s blog, they write: “the purpose is to build bridges that connect Cubans everywhere and lift the emotional embargo among us all, as we move forward together with our apprehensions and hopes, questions and convictions, doubts and dreams, into a new era of US-Cuban relations and the Cuba of tomorrow.” Ruth Behar joins us to discuss the project.
