- - In this digital archive you can explore the experiences of tens of thousands of citizens who have left Cuba in small boats, homemade rafts and other unusual craft. Currently 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.
