‘€œHavana: A Virtual Stroll‘€

Photojournalist Héctor Delgado Pérez takes us on a virtual tour through Havana, using aerial and street level views of the city. Covering the city‘€™s historical heritage and landmarks, the tour will accentuate daily life in Havana‘€™s streets: its markets, its social gatherings, its foot traffic, its vintage cars, and its notorious buses, the camellos. We glimpse its ritual practices (from Catholicism to Santería, Palo, Abakuá, and Spiritualism), as well as its processions, street performances, and its famed nightlife. With generous support from The Center for Scholars, School of Liberal Arts. Co-Sponsored by the Department of Spanish and Portuguese, Urban Studies, Religious Studies, Cuban and Caribbean Studies and African and African Diaspora Studies.
