Explore the experiences of tens of thousands of citizens who have left Cuba in small boats, Home made rafts and other unusual craft. The site focuses on those who precipitated and participated in one specific sea exodus - the raft crisis of 1994. Through photos, videos, bibliography, primary documents, and narratives the site examines the 1994 crisis and, by extension, begins to investigate the nature of the larger theme of post-1980 Cuban migration.
