Lee Schlenker and Marcel Lueiro Reyes, a Cuban popular educator, will talk about their work with Witness for Peace and the Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial Center in Havana, Cuba. Both are engaged in the struggle for a more inclusive and democratic socialism. Marcel is eager to discuss the perception of U.S. policies on the island as well as the influence of people from the U.S. on Cuban baseball, music and film.
Lee and Marcel will also propose a Witness for Peace delegation for Middlebury students, family and alumni. The delegations are immersive ten-day experiences to see the effects of U.S. policy, interact with grassroots organizations and return to the US with new ideas about building solidarity with Cubans.
