While our new installation Smoke Signals: Cigar Cutters and Masculine Values focuses on men and smoking culture, women have always been integral to the cultivation of tobacco and production of cigars. Learn about these contributions from the founders of Tres Lindas Cubanas Cigars, Yvette and Yvonne Rodriguez, as they share family stories and insights about Afro-Cuban women in the cigar industry during a conversation moderated by museum educator Susana Perez. Arrive early to see the show and chat with Smoke Signals' curator, Lea Nickless.

Co-presented with FIU's CasaCuba.
