Fidel Castro, 1978 by Marcelo Montecino

The death of Fidel Castro on November 25, 2016 marked the end of one of the world’s most influential people. 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. Join Scholars Kathleen Doty (Law), Reinaldo Román (History), Susan Thomas (Musicology), and Tim Samples (Business and law) as we discuss the implications that Castro’s death has for the island and the world.
