Carlos Eire: Confessions of a Cuban exile who becomes a wayward historian

Carlos Eire discussing his latest book, "Waiting to Die in Miami" at Ohio University in Athens, Ohio, Thursday, April 21 as part of the George Washington Forum on American ideas, politics and institutions.  It's fabulous, revealing, instructive, and heartbreaking. Take tissue.

Thank you Carlos for sharing your Cuban soul, and bearing witness to Cuba's true history.

    We can't see or hear the audience except for some laughs when the Professor says something amusing. But one gets the sense that this audience knows pretty much nothing about a whole lot of things.
    Did anyone else get the same impression?
