Join KGNU, DJPC and Cafe Cultura for the Colorado leg of the national tour of two Honduran activists honoring the life of Berta Cáceres. Afro-indigenous autonomous feminist, poet and writer Melissa Cardoza and Karla Lara, an internationally recognized feminist who voices resistance through song and writing, will perform stories from Cardoza’s book *13 Colors of the Honduran Resistance* about women resisting brutal repression and finding unyielding hope. A post-performance dialogue will examine parallels between the current struggles in Honduras and the U.S. The event will take place on May 20th.
“These stories of bravery, of struggle and pain, and ultimately of a resilience rooted in a love for freedom will grip your heart.” – Alicia Garza, Co-creator of the Black Lives Matter Network
