Film Screening with Discussion of the Documentary The Castro Tapes
Saturday, March 25, 3:15 p.m.
Sixteen Acres Branch Library
Please join us for a free showing and discussion of a fascinating PBS documentary, The Fidel Castro Tapes. According to the producer: “To some an icon of resistance and to others the very face of dictatorial oppression, Fidel Castro was one of the most provocative political figures of the 20th century. The Fidel Castro Tapes chronicles how his drive and charisma catapulted him to power in Cuba and how he used these traits to maintain control of his country for nearly five decades and capture the attention of the world.”
There will be a discussion after the documentary that will feature a special guest, Sixteen Acres resident and former Springfield City Councilor Clodo Concepcion. Clodo grew up in Cuba, the second of 12 children, on a tobacco farm under the Batista government. He came to the United States in 1956.
