The Cuban Children Of 'Operation Pedro Pan'

Sep 9, 2016

This weekend, Delta will begin selling flights from Atlanta to Havana, Cuba for the first time in almost 55 years. When diplomatic relations between the United States and Cuba broke down in the early 1960s, a mass exodus of 14,000 children left Cuba for America as part of a large campaign called Operation Pedro Pan. Carmen Bernal ended up in Milledgeville, Georgia. We look back on our conversation with the Georgia State University language professor as she shared her story.
