KORK will join HistoryMiami’s 11th Judicial Circuit Historical Society (11JCHS) to present an event that will recount one of history’s most important occurrences. This historical KORK event will bring together varied perspectives on the Cuban Missile Crisis, from distinguished panelists including, Dr. Carmen Lopez-Jordan, professor at Miami Dade College, Ackerman Senterfitt Attorney and Columbia Law School Professor, Pedro Freyre, and Marifeli Perez-Stable, Vice President for Democratic governance at the Inter-American Dialogue in Washington, DC. Hon. Scott Silverman (ret.), former Eleventh Circuit Court Historian will serve as moderator. These local scholars, all authorities on Cuban relations, will offer expert opinions and answer questions about this remarkable time in history. Topics discussed will include The Doomsday Clock, often used as an icon of this difficult period in history. The clock is not widely seen in present day, but at the time it served as a symbol of just how close the world came to an apocalypse. The Cuban Missile Crisis happened so quickly and with such secrecy that the famed Clock was not changed in time to reflect how close we actually were to disaster. The crisis lasted a total of 13 days in October, 1962. The commemoration will take place at KORK, and will begin at 6:30 p.m. with an hour of open wine and cocktail bar and passed hors d’oeuvres. The official program will begin at 7:00pm. Guests will also be invited to participate in a raffle to benefit HistoryMiami. Among the exclusive items will be a hotel stay and unique bottles of boutique wines, among others. Tickets may be purchased in advance, $30 for HistoryMiami Members, $40 for non-members,Â and also be purchased at the door for $40.
