A rare look at Havana through photos, music

Giving a rare inside look at the vibrant and rich culture of Havana, Judy Goldsmith will present Cuba Today at 6:30 p.m. Wednesday, May 1, at the Fond du Lac Public Library.

In February, Goldsmith took part in a UW-Waukesha tour group led by Wisconsin Public Radio’s Jonathan Overby. The group’s itinerary was titled, “Cuba: Bridging Diverse Cultures through World Music.”

Through musical recordings and dozens of photos, Goldsmith will revisit the sights and sounds of the capital city. She’ll talk about the insights she gleaned about Cubans’ everyday lives, the education, health and economic systems in a country she describes as a “virtually invisible to most Americans.”

Goldsmith, a 20-year resident of Fond du Lac, is a member of the Fond du Lac County Board of Supervisors and former CEO/campus dean of UW-Fond du Lac.

Cuba Today is free; no registration required.
