Event featuring 2 amazing artists from Honduras… Melissa Cardoza and Karla Lara.
Friday, April 21st 1:50pm-3:00pm, Foss Studio
Melissa Cardoza’s book 13 Colors of the Honduran Resistance tells thirteen stories of women who joined the resistance to the U.S. backed 2009 coup d’etat. Melissa is an an afro-indigenous fearless journalist, poet, writer, and feminist organizer from Honduras.
Melissa will be touring with her fellow member of the Honduran Red de Defensoras or network of women rights defenders and beloved jazz/folk protest singer Karla Lara, who appears in one of the book’s stories and has been an icon and sharp voice for the resistance. Both of the women were close friends of Berta Cáceres, the Honduran indigenous leader and organizer of COPINH who was assassinated for her work in defense of the Lenca people and against patriarchy, capitalism and racism. This book and this tour are dedicated to Berta.
Review of the book by Black Lives Matter co-founder Alicia Garza:
“13 Colors of the Honduran Resistance by Melissa Cardoza is a must read for anyone who wants to learn about the many contours of Honduran feminists fighting for self-determination and dignity. These stories of bravery, of struggle and pain, and ultimately of a resilience rooted in a love for freedom will grip your heart. Cardoza is brilliant in storytelling, and ensures that, in memory of our sister Berta Caceres, feminisms are three dimensional and span multiple experiences—trans, Black, elderly, and more. The lessons contained in these stories offer important reflections for all revolutionaries.”
