THE CUBAN SPEECH (Publication and Performance)

Where: Conflict Kitchen

When: July, 2015

In 2013, approximately one year before the U.S. and Cuba decided to reopen diplomatic relations, we asked Cubans and Cuban-Americans to write part of a speech that they would like President Barack Obama to deliver.  An edited version of this material was compiled into a final speech and performed by a professional Barack Obama look-alike for online distribution. A publication of the speech is available at our restaurant. Design by Brett Yasko Download PDF

Special thanks to: Orlando Luis Pardo Lazo, Witness for Peace | Acción Permanente por la Paz, and all of the Cubans and Cuban-Americans who participated in this publication and speech. Obama performed by Ron Butler.
