Cuban National Literacy Campaign Documentary Screening: Silvio y el Poder de la Palabra

View Full Event Description

Stone Center Masters student, Lilian Lombera has been working on this project and it is ready to launch THIS SUNDAY. Check out the launch of the new documentary & a tribute to Silvio Rodriguez y el Poder de La Palabra! Exclusive (free!) livestream presented by HotHouse. This 25-minute documentary film thoughtfully weaves archival footage of the Cuban Literacy Campaign of 1961 and a rare, exclusive interview with Cuba‘€™s iconic singer/songwriter and international recording artist, Silvio Rodriguez, as he recounts his first calling. At the age of 14, Silvio volunteered to join the brigade of over one hundred thousand teenagers that went into the Cuban mountains and countryside to teach rural campesinos how to read and write. In this exclusive interview, Silvio shares his memories on how he was impacted by the experience and how it shaped his life.

Check out the 1-minute trailer on the Literacy Project Films Youtube Channel

The event combines the debut screening of Silvio Rodriguez: Mi primera tarea, with a TRIBUTE CONCERT to Silvio Rodriguez.

The concert features globally renowned artists: Duo Made y Feña; Rochy Ameneiro-Rodrigo Garcia Ameneiro + Tania Haase (Duo Espiral); Katia and Nina Cardenal; Francisco Herrera; Quetzal; Rodstarz de Rebel Diaz and Franco Valdes; Kelvis Ochoa; Roly Berrio; Susana Baca & Lila Downs!

Central America, People and the Environment Educator Institute 2021

View Full Event Description

This summer educator institute is the third institute in a series being offered by Tulane University, The University of Georgia and Vanderbilt University. This series of institutes is designed to enhance the presence of Central America in the K-12 classroom. Each year, participants engage with presenters, resources and other K-12 colleagues to explore diverse topics in Central America with a focus on people and the environment.

While at Tulane, the institute will explore the historic connections between the United States and Central America focusing on indigenous communities and environment while highlighting topics of social justice and environmental conservation. Join us to explore Central America and teaching strategies to implement into the classroom.
