Students, faculty and members of the community join Tracey Eaton , assistant professor of writing, reporting and multimedia at Flagler College, on Tuesday, November 10, for "Cuba: A New Dawn?"—part of the 2015 Flagler College Community Lecture Series.

Eaton shares reporting from his 2015 Pulitzer Center-supported project "Cuban Youth: A New Dawn?" In August, he also assisted NBC with its coverage of the historic opening of the U.S. embassy in Havana.

For the past five years, Eaton has researched Cuba’s democracy movement and the U.S. government’s role in the country’s political transition. In December 2014, he traveled to Havana to present his findings at a conference. He also assisted the South Florida Sun Sentinel with a year-long investigation into Cuban organized crime.

Eaton has a master’s degree in journalism from Temple University and was a Fulbright scholar in Ecuador. He has conducted journalism workshops in Guatemala, Bolivia and Nicaragua, and has been an invited speaker at conferences in Mexico, Colombia, Costa Rica and Cuba.
