Castro and Cuba

South Florida flared with raw emotion, from anger to sadness, with the news of the death of Fidel Castro this weekend.

I helped with the Cuban and Cuban-American reaction story that was published Sunday in the Sun Sentinel's special section.

I also wrote a story for that section about a new Cuban museum focused on the exile experience.

Naturally, Fidel Castro's presence can be seen and felt at the American Museum of the Cuban Diaspora through the art work by Luis Cruz Azaceta currently on display throughout the center's two floors.

And this was the front page of the special section the Sun Sentinel published Sunday.
