Dot students return from 8-day visit to Cuba

Helen Y. Davis Leadership Academy took a hands-on approach to teach their students about Afro-Cuban history and culture this year: They traveled to Cuba for an 8-day excursion. The 23 middle school students were among the first in the City of Boston to visit Cuba in decades.

The trip took place during April school vacation week and the itinerary included Old Havana, New Havana, historic forts and national monuments, sugar plantation in the Trans-Atlantic Slave Trade, tobacco cultivation and the role of art and music in Cuban culture as part of the school’s travel abroad program.
