President Obama's announcement to begin normalizing relations with Cuba marks the most significant change in United States policy toward the island nation in a half century. But as America looks to make it easier to travel to the country and establish more economic ties, what does that mean for the average Cuban or Cuban American?

In this special edition, America Abroad teams up with Latino USA for an in-depth look at the long and complex history between the United States and Cuba and explores how this historic policy shift will affect everyone from families living in both countries, to human rights activists, business owners, even poets. We'll hear stories from Havana and Miami, and a wide range of perspectives and personal narratives.
