Jose "Pepe" Viera: Cuba and U.S.–Cuban Relations Past, Present, and Future

Wednesday, September 10, 2014

Want to learn more about Cuba and U.S.-Cuban relations? Please join us for this special opportunity to discuss with a former high-ranking diplomatic official with experience in international relations since the early years of the Cuban Revolution. Visiting directly from Havana, Pepe Viera will talk about the past, present, and future of Cuba and its relations with the U.S. and will offer unique perspectives from Cuba itself. Viera has served in many high posts in the Cuban government since the 1960s, especially in Cuba’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs, including in the Cuban embassies in several countries and the Cuban Mission to the UN, but also in relation to the sugar and tourism industries. Please welcome Pepe and his wife Cecilia to Bard as they visit their grandson who graduated from Bard last semester.

For more information, call 617-372-0911, or e-mail mrodrig@bard.edu.

Time: 6:00 pm

Location: Campus Center, Weis Cinema
