The Cuba Blockade: Why Continue Economic Sanctions? (Promo)

Premiering Wed., March 31, 2021 at 9:30 p.m. ET/PT.

The history of U.S.-Cuba relations is mired in political complexity. In this episode, adapted from a web series produced in Havana, an independent journalist looks at the harsh impact of six decades of American sanctions, from the point of view of many of Cuba’s 11 million citizens. Despite “the blockade,” the socialist country of Cuba survives — the people are resourceful, there is free education and a free, world-class medical system. But COVID-19 has taken their challenges to a precarious new level.
