November 2014 Events at EastSide Cultural Center

REEMBARQUE

A film and visit by Gloria Rolando!

Friday, November 7th , 6:30pm
EastSide Cultural Center

2277 International Blvd
Oakland

Join Haiti Action Committee, the Black Student Union of Merritt College and EastSide Arts Alliance for this very special evening with Gloria Rolando and her new film, REEMBARQUE.  The film explores the Cuba's complex history around people of African descent, in particular, Haitians.  During the early part of the 20th century and before the Cuban Revolution, Haitian migrant agricultural workers faced hardships and discrimination while toiling in Cuba.  Many were forcibly deported when they were no longer needed.  However, they left behind their rich spiritual practices, dynamic music and dance, as well as their history of resistance. The voices of prominent historians join the memories of Haitians and their descendants in Cuba to understand a forgotten chapter in Caribbean history.
