Film Screening and Discussion | Ruston Academy: From Dreams to Reality

April 6, 2022 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

The Ruston Academy was a private bilingual American school founded in Havana, Cuba, in 1920. It was forced to close in 1961, after the nationalization of all private schools on the island by Fidel Castro’s government. Tony Leal’s documentary, “Ruston Academy: From Dreams to Reality,” is based on a book written by the school’s director, James D. Baker, which seeks to capture the unique history and personal experiences of Ruston students.
