University professors of renowned trajectory in those studies and young researchers shed new light on the cultural polemics of those years, focusing on the arts, artists and the Revolution to fully understand those historic circumstances.

A significant appearance will take place next June with the interventions of the National Prizes of History, doctors Olga Portuondo and Hebert Perez, in relation to the repercussions in Santiago de Cuba city of those pronouncements of the historic leader six decades ago.

Considered an essential programmatic document in Cuban cultural policy, the speech made by the then Prime Minister on June 30, 1961 at the Jose Marti National Library was known as 'Words to Intellectuals' and sealed the intelligent commitment to the future of the nation.
