Ana Ignacia Rodriguez (former leader of the Student Movement) will talk about her experience as an activist. Professor Gomez will screen Marisol Cabrera's documentary "Casa Libertad" - a discussion will follow.
The Student Movement of 1968 changed political, social, and cultural practices in Mexico. In spite of its tragic repression on October 2 in Tlatelolco Square, survivors and civil society have been struggling against oblivion. The documentary film Casa Libertad portrays the efforts of a neighborhood on the outskirts of Mexico City to transform the former women's prison into a public high school. Please join us to discuss with Ana Ignacia Rodríguez and Marisol Cabrera the crucial role of activism and social movements after 1968.
Sponsored by the Center for Peace and Global Citizenship, the Spanish Department, and the Distinguished Visitors Office.
