Dr. Marquez-Sterling speaks on his recently published book Cuba 1952-1959: The True Story of Castro's Rise to Power. The author was a witness to history in the seven critical years when the struggle for Cuba was not just between Fulgencio Batista and Fidel Castro, but also a third force that advocated for a peaceful, democratic resolution. Elections were held on November 3, 1958 and Dr. Sterlings father, Carlos Marquez-Sterling, was a candidate for President. His father was predicted to win by a landslide, but there was rampant electoral fraud, due to Batista and the Army. Six weeks after the election, Batista fled Cuba and Castro's revolution took over the country.

"Research shows that most people have a definite opinion about the death penalty, even though they know little about it. Moreover, for many people who think they know about the death penalty, what they know is often inaccurate. Bohm's lecture will address the many reasons given in support of the death penalty, the evidence that contradicts those reasons, and why those reasons do not justify the continued use of the death penalty in the United States." http://www.plymouth.edu/events/sidore/179/%E2%80%9Cdo-we-...
