Notice biographique

Mirta Ojito was born in Havana, Cuba and came to the United States during the Mariel boatlift in 1980. Ojito earned a degree from Florida Atlantic University and a master's degree in journalism from Columbia University, where she now teaches as a journalism professor. She has won several major awards for her work, including a 1999 award for best foreign report from the American Society of Newspaper Editors, and she shared a 2001 Pulitzer prize for her reporting on race in America. In 2005, Ojito published her memoir of exile from Cuba, El Mañana (Finding Tomorrow).

Zone du contenu et de la structure

Portée et contenu

The Mirta Ojito papers contain a collection of clippings, press releases, and government documents relating to the Mariel boatlift, and photographs, clippings, and excerpts documenting Cuban history. Ojito used the files for writing the memoir of her exile in the United States, El Mañana (Finding Tomorrow), published in 2005.

The materials found in the collection create a context from which the social and economic cost of the Mariel boatlift, for both Cuba and the United States, can be understood. Various prominent (and at times notorious) figures within the Cuban exile movement are examined.
