HAVANA, Cuba, 2 September 2011 — AU Aroad student Chelsea Crandall, far left, walks through the Museo de la Revlucion in Centro Havana, Cuba. Crandall is one of six AU students taking part in a semester at Casa de las Americas, Cuba’s premier cultural center. In addition to four courses they are taking from Cuban professors, the six AU students will be taking my Photojournalism and Social Documentary class, which I teach as the foundation to the methodology that we refer to as backpack journalism.
Above, the AU students wrap up a series of field trips with a visit to the Capitolio, in Centro Havana. From left are Cristina Khan, Emmalee June Kinard, Chelsea Crandall, Cuban Professor and Historical Guide Gerardo Hernandez Bencomo and Paul Garrett.
