Some U-N-L Journalism Students Have Just Returned from a Once in a Lifetime Experience
U-N-L is one of the first journalism schools to be able to examine the 43-year-old U-S trade Embargo of Cuba. They spent 11 days in Cuba, focusing on how the U-S Embargo of Cuba affects Lincoln farmers and cattle ranchers. More than four-hundred interviews were conducted with Cubans and Politicians.
A couple of days were also spent in Florida interviewing Cuban-American's about the trade embargo. The U-S Treasury Department granted the students permission to enter the country and they say nothing could have prepared them for what they learned on this trip.
The students will spend the spring semester going through the video, and interviews. They will put together both a magazine and a documentary. They hope to release both to the public at the end of the semester.
