50 years ago this month, the world experienced a harrowing 13 days of
nuclear brinksmanship known as the Cuban missile crisis. We now know much

available, as the events of those days continue to reverberate.

local witness to the events. The panel includes:

   University, Co-author, US-Cuban Relations: A Critical History;
   - Felino de la Peña, Cuban-American member, Fair Play for Cuba
   Committee, 1962;
