For two weeks in October 1962, the world held its breath while President Kennedy and Premier Khruschev navigated one of the most intense showdowns of the Cold War. Marking the 50th anniversary of the Cuban Missile Crisis, this hands-on workshop offers participants an insider view into this pivotal event in history. Experience the drama surrounding the Soviet attempt to secretly place ballistic missiles in Cuba. Learn how raw intelligence, analysis, and back channel exchanges enabled, or in some cases hindered, Kennedy as he sought to avert a nuclear war. Step into the shoes of a CIA analyst in October 1962 through a simulation using declassified U-2 photographs and documents to make recommendations to President Kennedy at various stages of the crisis. Following the simulation, Eugene Poteat, a retired senior CIA Scientific Intelligence Office will speak about overhead reconnaissance and its role in the Cuban Missile Crisis and his personal experience during this tense time.

Co-sponsored by the Woodrow Wilson Center's Cold War International History Project (www.cwihp.org).

Tickets: $15
