All Episodes

In the final installment of “Operación Pedro Pan: The Voices and Stories of Cuba’s Child Exodus—A Knights HistoryCast Mini-Series,” the Department of History’s Sebastian Garcia talked with Dr. Cecilia Rodríguez-Milanés, a Professor of English with a specialty in Latinx Literature at the University of Central Florida, and Dr. Lisa Nalbone, a Professor of Spanish and Coordinator of the Latin American Studies BA Program at the University of Central Florida. Both of these women were the coordinators of the esteemed, conspicuous, beautiful, and powerful “Operación Pedro Pan: Honoring the Cultural, Historical Legacy of Cuba’s Child Exodus” Two-Day Program that Florida Humanities, UCF’s Department of English and Department of Modern Languages and Literatures sponsored (see https://cah.ucf.edu/pedro-pan/ for more details on sponsors and the program in general).

Sebastian wanted the “brains” behind this event to be highlighted in this mini-series as well, so their conversation focused on the responsibilities and expectations that come with creating and organizing an event like this, why it matters, and so much more.

If you could not attend the event, listen to the previous episodes of this mini-series (ep. 35-37) to get a more intimate perspective from the panelists involved with this event.
