Show & Tell: Global Revolution from Harlem to Havana
October 15, 2014 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm| Free
Throughout the 1960s-70s, U.S. Black Power activists traveled to Havana, Cuba where they helped build a global revolutionary movement called the Tricontinental.
This movement, which produced films, posters, and magazines in four languages, played a central role not only in U.S. civil rights but also in the defeat of apartheid in South Africa and in the emergence of the anti-globalization movement.
In this talk, Spanish professor Anne Garland Mahler guides us through a geography of Cold War radicalism from Harlem to Havana, Hanoi, and Cape Town sharing the Tricontinental’s politically charged and artistically innovative cultural production and reflecting on its relevance today.
