Anniversary Highlights: Argentinian Politics and Afro-Cuban Tradition

In this segment of Latin Pulse’s 5-year anniversary program, we look back at excerpts and outtakes from the past year of programs, particularly an analysis of Argentinean politics and a popular segment explaining a Cuban celebration.

Eric Hershberg of American University's Center for Latin American & Latino Studies (CLALS) and Chris Sabatini of Columbia University discuss the government that Mauricio Macri entered as the new Argentinian president.

Michael Atwood Mason of the Smithsonian Center for Folklife and Cultural Heritage explored the Feast of San Lazaro, an Afro-Cuban event celebrated primarily by followers of Santeria.
