Evangelical Christianity grows in once-atheist Cuba April 06, 2018
Though religion was once pushed underground in Cuba, the government tolerated its re-emergence in the uncertainty following the dissolution of the Soviet Union. The Cuban government has been quietly tolerating many forms of religious expression — as long as religious practice doesn’t veer into political dissent. And a new faith movement is picking up a bit of the slack as the country’s social welfare system comes under strain — the fast-growing Evangelical Christian tradition. Plus, a reporter from WAMU reports on how people of faith in Washington DC, like those across the country, reflected on the 50th anniversary of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s assassination.
