Final couple of days in Havana

One important component of the Pastors for Peace mission to Cuba is the on-going hip-hop cultural exchange that is being facilitated.

This year, some young hip hop folk from Sacramento entertained us in McAllen Texas - at a press conference and in the gym one evening - they travelled on the same bus as me to the province of Sancti Spiritus and jammed with some local folks they found there, and near the end of our adventure they performed, along with some Cuban hip-hop artists, at the Friendship Centre (Casa de la Amistad).
