Today in History: Senior Spy Targeted Church & Two Washington Universities 1

November 13, 1996:  Johanna Tablada spoke at both the University of Washington and Seattle University. Predictably, she also lectured in at least one Seattle-area church. Tablada provided Cuba’s perspective of the impact of US sanctions and the gains of the Revolution. She continued the myth of the Revolution’s major increase in literacy and universal health care and carried on Havana’s false claim of a sharp decline in infant mortality. Her appearances were part of a three-day visit sponsored by the Seattle Cuba Friendship Committee.
