Cuba after Fidel

For almost 50 years, the United States has imposed a trade embargo and travel restrictions against communist Cuba. But in April, the U.S. announced that it would ease some restrictions on travel and commerce between the two countries.

With Barack Obama and Raúl Castro now in charge, change is openly talked about on Cuba's street corners -- from young people testing the limits of protest to the government forging new economic partnerships around the globe.

Correspondent Peter Eisner and producer Ara Ayer traveled to Cuba in the winter of 2009 to determine where U.S.-Cuban relations might be headed and explore the impact of the change in Cuba's leadership.

""Cuba after Fidel" is a collection of signature videos, interviews, blogger perspectives, an online radio show on U.S.-Cuban relations and web original videos including hip hop video protesting politics and a poet praising the revolution.
