In this episode I interview Gerardo Gonzalez who recounts his childhood in Placetas. He discusses with me how it was to return to the Cuba he left as a young boy to reconnect with his roots. He recounts moments in his life while in Cuba and his love for his grandfather who he never was able to see again. He dedicates his memoir to all the refugees who have an opportunity to come to America, the beautiful. As a Dean at Indiana University, he was fortunate to initiate a scholarship fund to help other who came looking for a better life in America. Everything he was able to accomplish was because he had his grandfather and family who were his anchors throughout his life. Proceeds from the memoir are donated to refugees, Cuban or not.
