Fidel Castro's impact on the Cuban consciousness is still felt today
Ernie Garatiex, his sister Marilyn and his wife Yvette are first-generation Cuban-Americans. Marilyn, a journalist for the St. Petersburg Times, wrote about her family's experience growing up with a keen awareness of her parents' impressions of a Castro-led Cuban government. Her personal essay was written a year ago, and it's as relevant today as it ever was. It details the sometimes painful disconnect between generations, like that of her parents and her young niece and nephew, and the challenge that stems from holding onto yesterday while looking toward tomorrow. Producer Larry Elliston introduces us to the Garatiex family in this week's Florida Story.
