For the first time in a lifetime, the United States and Cuba enjoy normal diplomatic relations.
The economic embargo remains in place, but expect to see more cultural interchanges as time goes by.
Including one coming to Southern Oregon University in Ashland this weekend.
"The Cuban 5 Return" marks the return of five men from American prisons to Cuba a year ago.
Weekend celebrations include a photographic exhibition, discussions, and performances.
Some of the participants join us for a chat about the history and future of Cuban/American relations.
