MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) -

President Barack Obama will be the first sitting American president to visit Cuba in 88 years, and at least two people from Tennessee will join him.

Congressman Steve Cohen is one of them.

During the trip, Obama will pay tribute to Cuban baseball legend Minnie Miñoso, the first black Cuban in the major leagues.

Sheyla Paz, the owner of an internet media company behind the only Spanish and English entertainment webpage in Nashville, was also invited on the 10-day trip.

Paz and Cohen are just two of the 200 people who will make the historic trip.
