Marking the 50th anniversary of the Cuban Missile Crisis, this educator professional development workshop offers educators an insider view into this pivotal event in history. Begin the evening with an exclusive Dine and Dialogue session with Peter Earnest, Spy Museum Executive Director and former spy. Following this, educators will be able to 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.
