Latino Documentary at College Church

“HARVEST OF EMPIRE:The Untold Story of Latinos in America”
on Sunday, Nov 9th at 11:45 (after our 10:30 Mass)
in the College Church ballroom – light lunch included.

If anyone cooks – and would like to bring a dish – GREAT!

“Harvest of Empire: ” presents a punchy history of a seldom-explored basis for the “immigration crisis,” of Latin American emigration after U.S. interventions”

Harvest of Empire is a breakthrough documentary in the way it connects the historical interaction between the US and Latin America with the immigration debate. Using rarely seen newsreel footage and interviews with prominent migrants from countries in the Caribbean, Mexico, and Central America, the film puts a human face on an issue too often reduced to vulgar stereotyping. It has the effect of changing the discourse from one of “illegality” to “historical truth.”
