The US and Cuba have had no diplomatic relations since 1961, but the breakdown of relations came steadily after the revolution in 1959 which brought communist leader Fidel Castro to power.
By 1960 Castro’s government had seized private land and companies, some of which were US subsidiaries. President Eisenhower began restricting trade with the island nation but it was President Kennedy who established a permanent embargo on February 7 1962.
The tensest moment came in October of the same year w…

Cuban skateboarders manage to catch some air with very few skate supplies available on the island. But Cuba Skate, a Washington, D.C.-based nonprofit that works to bring skate gear and culture to Cuba, might get a boost from the latest thaw in relations
HAVANA — In the seven months since the U.S. and Cuba declared detente, American politicians have flooded Havana to see the sights, meet the country’s new entrepreneurs and discuss the possible end of the U.S. trade embargo with leaders of the communist government.
Their agendas have also featured an increasingly conspicuous hole — the spot once occupied by U.S.-backed dissidents who then sat at the center of Washington’s policy on Cuba.
According to an Associated Press count confirmed by leading dissidents, more than 20 U.S. lawmakers have come to Cuba since February without meeting with opposition groups that once were an obligatory stop for congressional delegations.
Advocates of President Barack Obama’s outreach to Cuba say it’s a more intelligent way to push for democratic reform on the island. After decades of fruitlessly trying to strengthen the government’s opponents, they see diplomatic engagement as the best method for persuading Cuba it’s time to open the political system and keep loosening control of the centrally planned economy.
