Teo Babun talked about the book he co-wrote with Victor Andres Triay, The Cuban Revolution: Years of Promise, published by University Press of Florida. The book contains photographs of the Cuban Revolution collected by his father. The photographs cover the uprising against, and the eventual overthrow of, the Batista government in the late 1950s. During his presentation, Mr. Babun talked about how his father began working with Fidel Castro and argued that there is a wide gap between the official history of the revolution as described in Cuban history books and the story of what really happened. He said that Fidel Castro went back on his promise to create a democracy after the revolution and it is this betrayal that drives most anti-Castro forces within Cuba and the United States. He showed slides of the photographs. After his presentation he responded to questions from members of the audience. close
