Adapted from the book by Democracy Now co-host Juan Gonzalez, Harvest of Empire chronicles the long history of US military and economic intervention in Latin America, and the resulting unprecedented wave of migration that transformed America's cultural and economic landscape.

From the late 19th century wars for territorial expansion that gave the US control of Puerto Rico, Cuba and most of Mexico (and Hawai`i) to the covert operations that imposed oppressive military regimes in Honduras, Ecuador, El Salvador and Guatemala, Harvest of Empire unveils a moving human story that is largely unknown in today's America.

Opening the event: Latin Music performed by Peruvian-born now Kaua`i resident Danitza Galvan, with John Dumas and Blu Dux.
