Interview with Raisa Fernandez, Part 1 of 4
From - UM Libraries on August 20th, 2015
Raisa Fernandez relates her experiences concerning her early life in Cuba, and the transition to life in Miami when she was 10-years-old in 1960. Much of the interview deals with her parents, their humanitarian vision, their struggle for social and political reform, and their subsequent troubles with the Cuban government. However, the focus of the interview lies in Raisa’s perceptions of public space, and the needs of Little Havana as a neighborhood. This leads her to reflect on her role as a parent, and on her experiences as a school bus driver.
