Mere months after President Obama’s historic visit to Cuba, The Tom Joyner Foundation (TJF), the Dallas-based nonprofit that helps support historically black colleges and universities, lead a one-of-a-kind four-day mission to Cuba with numerous HBCU presidents.

In a previously released press release, the TJF noted the trip was about discovering possible connections in the country, “We want to provide an opportunity for HBCU presidents to begin to figure out how Cuba may play a role in providing exciting opportunities for their students and research for their faculty.”

We can’t wait to see what new relationships have been forged from this visit.
