The Cuban saga of the latter half of the 20th Century is an epic, heartbreaking tale of global, politics and grand history. From Castro to Kennedy, the CIA to the Mafia, Communism to Capitalism. Totalitarianism to Democracy, the actors have been players on the world stage, and the issues and conflicts have been titanic. Yet the story of Cuba is not only the story of competing philosophies and colliding governments, it is also a very human story of an entire people caught in the eye of this ongoing hurricane. Generations after generation of Cubans, whether in Cuba, Miami, New York or elsewhere, have had their lives forever altered in the unending struggle to define and claim Cuba. Put aside politics and players, great men and greater causes, this story, as with every true epic, is about the people involved.
