Join CLAS for Dinner and a Movie to celebrate Black History Month! Enjoy a warm meal while watching Menino 23, a film exploring the enslavement of fifty black and mulato boys in rural Brazil during the 1930s. During that time, local elites in Brazil bought into Nazi and Fascist regimes and even subjected victims to racist experiments. Two of the surviving boys, now in their 80s, share their stories for the first time. CLAS Assistant Director Dr. Nicolette Kostiw will lead a discussion exploring how fascism, Nazism and scientific racism play out in Latin America, as well as possible avenues for classroom application. This event is open to all educators and anyone interested in the subject matter.
