Join us this Friday for the first installment in a series of events celebrating the 60th anniversary of the Cuban Revolution. The Party for Socialism and Liberation will hosting a free screening of the documentary “Fidel: The Untold Story”. With a dark cloud of US propaganda over Cuba and the leader of their revolution, it can be difficult for one to comprehend the gains of Cuba's Socialist economy and the importance of Fidel Castro's role in the country's evolution. The film offers an unique glimpse into Castro's character.
Alice Walker, Harry Belafonte, and Sydney Pollack discuss Fidel as a person, while former and current US government figures including Arthur Schlesinger, Ramsey Clark, Wayne Smith, Congressman Charles Rangel and a former CIA agent offer political and historical perspectives on Castro and the long-standing US embargo against Cuba. Family members and close friends, including Nobel Prize-winning author Gabriel Garcia Marquez, offer a window into his rarely seen personal life.
Light snacks and refreshments will be available. Limited parking on Westmoreland/8th. Red and Purple line to Wilshire/Vermont station.
