Guantanamo and Caribbean Newspapers Expand Research and Teaching Opportunities

Professor Sharika Crawford was excited to see the collection of several newspapers published at Guantanamo Naval Base in Cuba preserved by the Latin American Materials Project (LAMP) and available openly through the Digital Library of the Caribbean. These Guantanamo newspapers include Gitmo Review (1963-1964), Daily Gazette (1980-1987) and others, which offer articles on national and foreign news as well as local events and sports.
