Remembering Raúl H. Castro

A Panel Discussion

Raúl H. Castro’s life is the stuff that Hollywood movies are made of. His story of persistence is one that should be told—and often. To celebrate the opening of the exhibit, The Life and Legacy of Raúl H. Castro, Special Collections presents a panel discussion about his life and career. Panelists include: Castro’s daughter, Beth Castro; nephew, Ignacio “Nacho” Castro; former U.S. Senator Dennis DeConcini, chairman of Castro’s campaign for governor; James Garcia, a journalist and playwright who has written a play, American Dreamer, about Castro; and Derek Arnson, former Nogales, Arizona, police chief and friend of the Castro family. A reception sponsored by the College of Social and Behavioral Sciences follows. 

Please note that some audiovisual content within our digital collections and exhibits is temporarily unavailable as we prepare to migrate it to a new platform.
