"Charla": a Chat with Jose Marti: TODAY

Event is on: Apr 16, 2009
Updated on: Apr 16, 2009 @ 9:24:00 am

“Charla,” A Chat With José Martí,

portrayed by Chaz Mena. In 1891, José Martí is preparing for his first trip to Tampa and Ybor City. Time is running out for the Cuban independence movement against Spain, and Martí must inspire and galvanize the Cuban people. Martí, a Cuban national hero, reflects upon his childhood, his studies, his writings, and his loves. Charla, which in Spanish means “a chat,” allows us to appreciate the challenges Martí faced as a leader during the 19th century Cuban revolution.

Refreshments will be served. Free and open to the public.

Thursday, April 16 at 3 p.m. in Room 223, Main Library.

The United States is changing some aspects of our relationship with Cuba----it’s a great time to learn about Jose Marti and Cuba’s past!
