During the State of the Union address last night, President Obama asked Congress to begin to lift the embargo against Cuba.

Last month, the President made an historic announcement that the U.S. would restore diplomatic relations with Cuba after five decades.

Senator Sheldon Whitehouse, D-R.I., recently returned from Cuba, as part of a six-member Democratic congressional delegation. While there, the group met with Cuban officials, dissidents, and everyday citizens, to hear what they envision normalization to mean in their lives. The trip was deemed "very productive."

Dr. Monica Simal is an Assistant Professor of Spanish at Providence College and a native of Havana, Cuba. Her area(s) of expertise include Cuban cultural identity and Cuban Literature. 

To speak with her directly, please contact Chrissy Centazzo at (401) 340-5710, or ccentazz@providence.edu
