Warren Wilson Professor Dr. Lucy Lawrence featured on WLOS

Lawrence commented on the current unrest in Cuba, based on her experience traveling with students to Cuba

Warren Wilson Professor of Social Work Dr. Lucy Lawrence was interviewed by WLOS alongside the Bishop of the Episcopal Diocese of WNC about the widespread unrest currently happening in Cuba.


In the interview, Lawrence said the pandemic is exacerbating issues that have persisted in Cuba for decades, and that U.S. policies toward Cuba could also be playing a role in the country’s plight and lack of access to aid.

Lawrence has taken Warren Wilson students on multiple trips to Cuba, the most recent in January of 2021. Click here to read an article about that trip in the alumni and friends magazine, Owl & Spade.
