Do you or your family have a story to share about the Freedom Tower? In advance of the building’s centennial, we are collecting stories about the impact of the building on people’s lives. These stories range from its earliest history as a newspaper headquarters and printing plant to its important role as an Assistance Center for refugees fleeing Cuba for a new life in the United States to its recent chapter as the home of the Miami Book Fair, the Miami Film Festival, Live Arts Miami, the Museum of Art and Design, the Cuban Legacy Gallery, and the Kislak Center. Let us know why the Freedom Tower matters to you.
