My cousins Katrina Browne and James DeWolf Perry, along with Project Director Tulaine Shabazz Marshall, returned home from Cuba yesterday (March 31) after joining the team from the Freedom Schooner Amistad as part of the United Nations commemoration of March 25 as the global Day of Remembrance for the victims of the Atlantic Slave Trade as well as the Cuban premiere of Traces of the Trade in Havana.

This AP story has appeared in news outlets all over the place and gives a great overview of James’ and Katrina’s second visit to Cuba. I look forward to the day when our country’s absurd embargo is lifted so any American citizen can more easily visit this wonderful island nation.
