When the building we now call Miami’s Freedom Tower was completed in 1925, it was the headquarters for “The Miami News” newspaper. But it is best known for its role in the 1960s, when refugees from Cuba fleeing Fidel Castro’s communist regime arrived here. The newcomers were processed and documented at the tower; it became known as the “Ellis Island of the South”. In 2005, the Freedom Tower was donated to Miami-Dade College. Today it is used as a museum, as well as a cultural and educational center. We focus on the new exhibit about to be unveiled at the Freedom Tower, called “The Cuban Exile Experience”.
