BLACK HISTORY MONTH POSTER
Sponsored by the Center for Worker Education (CWE) and the Langston Hughes Festival Film screening and discussion on 'Roots of my Heart," an independent short feature by Gloria Rolando, Cuba's only living Black woman filmmaker. “Roots of My Heart' deals with the 1912 massacre of over 6000 Black Cubans who were members and supporters of the Independents of Color, the hemisphere's first Black political party outside Haiti. In the period after Cuban independence, the Independents of Color organized a political party to fight for their rights to full employment, education, full political participation, respect, and dignity. Discussion to follow with the film's co-producer Gilberto Martinez. Event co-sponsored by the Center for Worker Education Student Government (CWESG) and the CWE Alumni Association.
