POWELL, Wyoming — The Northwest College Intercultural House invites the public to explore “CUBA: Then and Now,” a Thursday, Sept. 24, program focusing on Cuban culture and history.
The 7 p.m. presentation features three Americans who have traveled or lived in Cuba.
Anthony Polvere, a faculty member in NWC’s Photography Department, will begin the program by sharing his photography and observations of the island nation. Polvere has traveled to Cuba twice, most recently in 2013 with an NWC field studies class.
Professor of History Steve Thulin will discuss Cuba’s history and offer his impressions from living there 45 years ago and revisiting the island in 1999.
Cody early childhood educator Jessica Case studied in Cuba and will focus her comments on the educational footings she found there.
The insights offered by these three presenters are somewhat rare since travel to Cuba was tightly restricted from 1961 through July of this year when the United States restored diplomatic relations.
The evening ends with refreshments reflecting the Cuban cuisine.
“CUBA: Then and Now” is one of the events in NWC’s celebration of National Hispanic Heritage Month.
Admission is free. The NWC Intercultural House is located at 565 College Drive.
