  2. CU Forum on Cuba  

    DEMYSTIFYING CHE: Che Guevara and His Legacy

    Join the Columbia University Forum on Cuba this Thursday, April 26th at 8 p.m. for an open discussion on Che Guevara and his legacy. Our moderator, political science professor emeritus Douglas Chalmers, will guide the discussion, but all students are welcome to join the dialogue and bring in their own questions or talking points. Some topics we hope to discuss are the evolution of Che as a pop culture icon in the decades after his death, as well as his involvement with the Cuban revolution of 1959, and the revolutions of many other Latin American countries. This event will be in Hamilton 306, and there will be free food and drinks. For questions please contact columbiauniversityforumoncuba@gmail.com.
