When: Monday, April 22, 2019, 7:00 pm to 9:00 pm
Where: encuentro 5 • 9A Hamilton Place • Boston

*Race (Raza): A Cuban Documentary in Colors (2009).* Alternating 
opinions expressed by everyday citizens with interviews of prominent 
Cuban intellectuals and artists, the 35-minute film explores what Cubans 
think and believe about race, including about racial discrimination in 
Cuba and the acknowledged debt owed to Cubans of African descent.

Set against the successes of the Revolution, the film courageously addresses 
the difficult debate over how a revolutionary society can persevere in 
tackling the unfinished work of bringing social justice to each and 
every one of its members.  Corvalan has continued to work on the issues 
of race/racism in Cuba as a member of the National Union of Writers and 
Artists of Cuba.
