Join us for this special Black History
Month event dedicated to the Cuban 5!
African American Activists have played a
key role in supporting the Cuban Revolution! Join us for a night of discussion
as we explore this rich political history!
We will be showing the amazing film After the Battle by Estela Bravo: For 13 years, Cubans and
Angolans fought side by side against South African forces in a little-known war
that helped to change the destiny of one part of Africa. What was the motivation
and what was the outcome for the ones who took part in their conflict? Those who
fought answer these questions for each side. Filmed on location in Angola, South
Africa, Namibia and Cuba, this documentary examines the politics of the war from
all sides and features remarkable combat footage, archival material and
interviews with Cuban and South African soldiers as well as grieving families of
those who were killed in the war.
