Nicaragua Film -- Ben Linder

Thursday, November 4
7:00 PM
Library Lecture Hall, Bridgewater State University

Geographer and First Parish member James Hayes-Bohanan will be showing the film American/Sandinista as part of a program on U.S. volunteers who worked in Nicaragua in the years following the Sandinista Revolution. The focus will be on Benjamin Linder, an engineer whose assassination by the contras helped to bring about an end to U.S. funding for that insurgency.
The university recently decided not to name a new cafe in Linder's honor; discussion following this film will include other possibilities for honoring the Linder legacy.
Fair-trade coffee and refreshments will be served.
