However, just beneath the surface is a wealth of black history that extends far beyond Hunter, Holmes, and desegregation. In what ways does our campus fail to tell this story?

Discussion: The Legacy of Fidel Castro

Leaving behind a legacy mired in international sanctions, political imprisonments, human and civil rights abuses while simultaneously achieving universal healthcare, the right to employment for the Cuban people and close to a 100% literacy rate. Described by many as a dictator, he was also hailed, as Richard Gott described him, as a “world hero in the mould of Garibaldi” for many people of the developing world.
