United States-Cuban relations have been tumultuous in the past several decades. After severing diplomatic ties in 1961 during the Cold War, the United States and Cuba have remained distant neighbors with vastly different national interests. Though official diplomatic relations were restored in July of 2015, financial and political complications still exist, and the relationship has not normalized. How do we better understand the current relationship? How can studying the nuances and challenges of the past and present help us understand the future of US-Cuba relations?

Join the World Affairs Council-Washington, DC as we host Ambassador Vicki Huddleston, author of "Our Woman in Havana: A Diplomat's Chronicle of America's Long Struggle with Castro's Cuba", to discuss the rocky relationship between Cuba and the United States, and how our past is still impacting our interactions today. Ambassador Huddleston served as the Principal Officer of the U.S. Interests Section in Havana from 1999-2002.
