Dear Friend of The Nation,

Join us as we travel to Havana, Cuba and surrounding towns on September 26 for a truly unique experience specially curated for fellow Nation travelers. Recent and historic changes in US policy toward the island nation promise to make this a particularly inspiring and extraordinary time to experience the people, politics, culture, and history of Cuba in a way few ever have before.

Our week long itinerary will include museum tours with eminent art and cultural historians; seminars and lectures featuring renowned Cuban economists, government officials, community activists, physicians, and urban planners; a meeting and discussion with the Cuban Five, the intelligence agents considered national heroes after spending many years imprisoned in US jails; exclusive concerts with popular jazz artists, troubadours, and folk musicians; performances by students of Cuba’s internationally acclaimed ballet institutes; visits to artist’s colonies and studios; guided tours of Old Havana, the Latin American Medical School, and the University of Havana; and visits to many other inspiring locales and events.

Event Information:

Keaton Otis was a young Black man murdered by the Portland police three years ago. The police admitted they stopped him for “looking like a gangster.” His father, Fred Bryant, has held a monthly vigil every month on the 12 since his son’s murder in his struggle for justice for three years, on the spot where Keaton’s life was taken.

Please join that struggle this month and help to spread the word.
