Description

Craig got into with the governor and his press secretary on Twitter over Ron DeSantis' refusal to appoint African American candidates to the state's Water Management District Boards.

Before the famous Mariel Boat Lift, 600,000 Cuban exiles immigrated to Florida following Fidel Castro's rise to power in Cuba in 1959. David Powell sought out these immigrants and allowed them to tell their stories in their own words. The result is his fascinating book "Ninety Miles and a Lifetime Away: Memories of Early Cuban Exiles."

"Welcome to Florida" is presented by Visit Sarasota, home to Mote Marine Laboratory and Aquarium, a cutting edge marine research facility and public aquarium offering education and experiences with manatees, sharks, sea turtles and more.
