Description:
Sara Acevedo was born in the 1950s in Cuba in the Province of Cienfuegos. She lived under the Batista regime in her early childhood and witnessed the Cuban Revolution. Her father was involved in activites against the new Castro regime and ultimately had to flee the country, migrating to Spain and eventually ending up in the United States. Ms. Acevedo and her family would not be reunited until much later when she was able to legally migrate to the United States in the 1980s. 
 
The Rutgers Oral History Archives received an operating support grant from the New Jersey Historical Commission, a division of the Department of State. In the 2017-2019 cycle, this grant assisted the ROHA staff in making this oral history available to you for your use.
