Focus on Cuba: Documentary Screenings

Join us for two screenings of award-winning documentaries focusing on the resilient people and natural wonder of Cuba.   On Thursday February 26, we will be screening The Power of Community: How Cuba Survived Peak Oil. After the collapse of the Soviet Union in 1990, oil and food imports in Cuba dropped by more than half. This documentary details the hardships and showcases the creativity the Cuban people displayed as they struggled to overcome this exceptionally difficult period in their history.

African-American Docs from California Newsreel: ''The Language You Cry In

Spanning hundreds of years and thousands of miles, this program recounts the remarkable saga of how a nursery rhyme sung by the Gullah people of present-day Georgia was confirmed to be of African origin. When 18th-century slavers sent human cargo from Sierra Leone to America’s coastal South, they also sent a trove of cultural information that had been passed from Mende mothers to their daughters for generations—including a particular song that had been carefully preserved because it was used in funeral rites.
