Rethinking Reengagement Conference at UNC (9/26-27)

There is a high-powered academic conference coming up this weekend on US-Cuba relations. From the press release:

The United States and Cuba: Rethinking Reengagement Conference
September 26-27
Sonja Haynes Stone Center
150 South Road, Chapel Hill

Lawrence B. Wilkerson, former Chief of Staff to Secretary of State Colin Powell, will deliver the keynote address on September 26, 2008 at 7:00pm in the auditorium of the Sonja Haynes Stone Center.

Attendance to all conference events is free and open to the public.

Ob. musical tie-in: In an eerie pact of synchronicity, Jackson Browne is on Colbert Report just now, singing a song about breaking the embargo and "going down to Cuba...where the rhythm never ends." Perhaps he's running on empty...?
