Film screening of Harvest of Empire kick-offs Hispanic Convención

The Hispanic Roundtable will host a special free screening of the documentary film, Harvest of Empire: The Untold Story of Latinos in America, Thursday, September 19, 2013 at 5:30pm to 7:30pm at the Julia De Burgos Cultural Arts Center, 5209 Detroit Avenue, Cleveland.

Based on the groundbreaking book by award-winning journalist and Democracy Now! Co-host, Juan González, Harvest of Empire, examines the political events, social conditions, and U.S. government actions that led millions of Latino families to leave their homelands, an unprecedented wave of migration over the past six decades, while featuring real-life stories and rare archival footage.

 Harvest of Empire features present day immigrant stories, rarely seen archival material, as well as interviews with Nobel Peace Prize Laureate Rigoberta Menchú, Rev. Jesse Jackson, ACLU Executive Director Anthony Romero, Pulitzer Prize-winning writer Junot Díaz, Mexican historian Dr. Lorenzo Meyer, journalists María Hinojosa and Geraldo Rivera, Grammy award-winning singer Luis Enrique, and poet Martín Espada.

“Immigration is one of the key issues facing America this decade, and it is critical for all Americans to have an understanding and appreciation of it,” said José C. Feliciano, Chairman of the Hispanic Roundtable.

The film will both educate and energize the community in anticipation of Convención Hispana, which takes place on October 19 at St. Ignatius High School. For more information, or to get involved with Convención Hispana, visit www.convencionhispana.org

There will be a pre-screening reception with refreshments starting at 5:30pm. Showtime is at 6:00pm. This event is FREE and open to the public. To RSVP for this event, visit www.harvestofempirech2013.eventbrite.com

The Hispanic Roundtable is a not for profit organization whose mission is to act as a catalyst to empower the Hispanic Community to become full partners in economic, education, political, civic and social life of Greater Cleveland.
