Medellin After Escobar

Medellín is best known for its worst times, when Pablo Escobar terrorized honest people, recruited children for his narcotrafficking, and upended a proud, hardworking social order. The transformation of Medellín since his death in 1993 has made Medellín a very different place. This project by Dept. of Spanish Prof. Kristine Munoz takes the form of a ride on the world-class Metro, the envy of Latin America, and shows some of Medellín’s triumphs today.
