November 2018
*Saturday, November 3 | 3:00 - 4:30 PM*
*Cuba, a Success Story*
Alvin Foster
“Cuba, a Success Story” is the title of the 1.5-hour video. The video is a
culmination of my six-week stay in Cuba, and driving cross-country from
Havana to Santiago. Cuba is a success story because it thrives even after
the longest, sustained boycott of a country in world history. In a video
walk-through, the rich cultural histories of Havana, Santiago, Trinidad
other cities are exhibited and the importance of the revolution is
explained. A classical concert inside the Basilica, the Havana
International Jazz Festival, and a visit to the arts displayed in the
F.A.C. in a small way portray he importance of the arts in Cuba.
*Saturday, November 10 | 2:00 - 4:00 PM*
*Legacies of the Russian Revolution*
John Womack and Wadi'h Halabi
The Russian Revolution 101 years ago was the greatest single step forward
in the entire history of humanity. Although ultimately overturned, it has
left many legacies -- in experience and actual organizations -- with a
crucial role in advancing humanity's transition to socialism and for
revolutionary optimism today. Join historian John Womack and the CPUSA's
Wadi'h Halabi in this important discussion.

*Saturday, November 17 | 2:00 – 5:00 PM*
*Book Sale Fundraiser – Cash or Check Only*
The CME is another hosting a Book Sale Fundraiser. There are no prices –
it’s donation only. Please bring your cash and dive into a gold mine of
books on topics ranging from emerging socialist ideas in the French
Revolution to decolonization, and the age of mass incarceration.

*Sunday, November 18 | 2:00 - 4:00 PM*
*Question 1 and the Struggle for a Just Health Care System*
Sandy Eaton, Mass.Nurses Association, Wadi'h Halabi, CPUSA
The US spends more on health care than any other country. Yet by almost all
measures, the outcome is worse than many countries that spend a fraction as
much. Prevention and public health are neglected. Millions are going
without necessary health care. Bankruptcy often follows a single health
emergency. Join us for a discussion of Question 1 and the struggle for a
just health care system.
