Honduran Feminist Resistance: Melissa Cardoza & Karla Lara

Sonderegger Science Center

Edgewood College invites Greater Madison to the Center for Multicultural Education Distinguished Lecture Series “Honduran Feminist Resistance: Author Melissa Cardoza and Singer Karla Lara.” Tickets are not required, and the public is welcome.
 
Melissa Cardoza’s book, 13 Colors of Honduran Resistance, poetically relates some of the most compelling moments she has witnessed amidst the brutal repression and struggle that characterizes Honduras today.

Cardoza is touring with jazz/folk/protest singer Karla Lara, who appears in one of the book’s stories and has been an icon and sharp voice for the resistance. Both of the women were close friends of Berta Cáceres, the Honduran indigenous leader and organizer of COPINH, who was a victim of assassination. Cardoza’s book and speaking tour are dedicated to Berta.
