FEB 9 & 16
WHEN: 10 AM-Noon
Cuba has a long and fascinating history, much of it unfamiliar to Tampans. Since the 1500s, diverse groups of people have immigrated to Cuba, including Florida Indians, Spaniards, enslaved Africans, Chinese laborers and even pirates. All the while, other individuals migrated out of Cuba for economic and political reasons–many to Florida, including the Tampa Bay area. Find out how the History Center’s new exhibit, Cuban Pathways, was created, and see artifacts that bring Cuban stories to life. The course includes a tour of the new exhibition by the historian who curated it, Dr. Brad Massey. This USF OLLI course is offered in-person and virtually on Feb. 9 and 16 with instructors Dr. Brad Massey, Heather Culligan and Nancy Dalence.
TBHC and Osher Lifelong Learning Institute (OLLI) offers free in-person and virtual courses to adults from 10 a.m.-noon. Sign up online at www.usf.edu/continuing-education/olli. OLLI membership fees are waived for History Center members.
