Cuba! Africa! Revolution! Screening and Discussion

See the acclaimed documentary, Cuba! Africa! Revolution!, at 5920 Second Ave., Detroit (just north of Wayne State and I-94). The documentary will be shown in two parts. There will will a discussion following the viewing of each part.

Part 1 - Friday, July 31, 7 PM

Part 2 - Friday, Aug. 7, 7 PM

Jihan El Tahri’s 2007 documentary “CUBA! AFRICA! REVOLUTION!” (aka “Cuba, an African Odyssey”) tells the previously untold story of Cuba’s support for African revolutions.

This documentary unravels the story of the so-called Cold War, through the prism of its least known arena: Africa. Against colonialism, capitalism, and communism, the newly independent nations fought to gain real control of their own countries and their valuable natural resources.

This is a must watch for anyone who seeks to view history through a balanced and accurate prism. This is a true and important side of history seldom told by the US mainstream Media or in Institutions of "Learning".
