Alina Fernandez at Wilkes University

Alina Fernandez, the daughter of Cuban leader Fidel Castro, will share her first-person, intimate account of growing up in Cuba at Wilkes University on March 22 as part of Women’s History Month. She will speak at 7 p.m. in 101 Stark Learning Center. The event is sponsored by the Northeastern Pennsylvania Diversity Education Consortium and the Office of Diversity Initiatives, and it will be free to the public.

Through her speech, Fernandez guides you through her life in Cuba and describes the surrounding political environment during the 1960s and 70s. Fernandez reveals exciting and suspenseful anecdotes, snapshots of Cuban society, her inside scoop on Cuban politics, and a detailed view of her father.
