The Militant Labor Forum presents:

TwoFilms About the Cuban Revolution


Join us at the Militant Labor Forum this Saturday night to view two films about 
the Cuban Revolution.


Maestra (Teacher)
 
A film about the 1961 literacy campaign in Cuba in which thousands of young 
people, the majority of them young women and teenage girls, were mobilized to go 
and live in the countryside to teach people how to read and write.
Maestra celebrates this amazing story on the 50th anniversary of the literacy 
campaign through original film footage of the period, photographs and personal 
interviews of the teachers who are now in their 60's, 70's and 80's.

Che Guevara on “Face the Nation”
 
In December, 1964, Che Guevara, a leader of the Cuban Revolution, traveled  to 
New York to address the United Nations.  During his eight-day stay he met with 
diplomatic representatives, with Cubans living in the US who supported the 
revolution, and with political activists.  During a reception at the Tanzanian 
mission he met another noted revolutionary leader -- Malcolm X.  On December 14 
he also appeared on the CBS news program Face the Nation.
