Dr. David LaFevor, assistant professor of history at University of Texas, Arlington, will present “Cuba Détente: A Visual Tour with David LaFevor” to the Rhodes community on March 2. The slide presentation begins at 4:15 p.m. in Buckman 110 and includes photographs he recently shot in Cuba. Thirty of these photographs will be on display in the first-floor hallway of Buckman Hall starting March 1.
