Che's Legacy in Latin America Today
Joaquin Mauricio Chavez, Sujatha Fernandes, Forrest Hylton & Others TBA
When Che Guevara and his guerilla column left for Bolivia the idea was not to wage an armed revolutionary struggle in that country alone; rather, the project was seen as part of a cohesive strategy rooted at once in internationalism yet specific to the developing liberation movements then taking shape throughout Latin America.. This panel will examine what Che Guevara has meant to Latin America, and how his internationalist ideology has continued into the twenty-first century.
Che in Africa
Monday, November 05, 7:30 pm
Herb Boyd, Joan Gibbs, Joseph Harris, Rosemary Mealy & Others TBA
Not as well known as his activities in Latin America, Che's actions in Africa, which culminated in his personal participation in the Congo's Revolutionary War, forged lasting bonds between the Cuban Revolution and the Continent…. This panel will explore the major contributions of Che to the African Revolution and His legacy there. A legacy that continues to this day with the ongoing medical/humanitarian missions Cuba continues to undertake.
