Margaret Randall in Conversation with Roxanne Dunbar-Ortiz, Presentation of TO CHANGE THE WORLD: MY YEARS IN CUBA, with discussion

$15

My life and work have been profoundly informed by parents who gave me love and adventure, and encouraged creativity; the dramatic desert canyons, rich colors and open skies of the southwestern United States; the second wave of feminism; and the generous mentorship of many great friends and colleagues. My children and grandchildren are always with me, even when far away; and my life companion is bedrock. New York’s abstract expressionist painters in the 1950s, Mexico and her struggles of the 1960s, the Cuban revolution’s second brave decade in the 1970s, the Vietnamese people’s struggle against US attack and occupation in that same decade, and the Sandinista attempt to change Nicaragua in the early 1980s were places and events that shaped me. The exploration of ancient sites continues to be a source of nourishment, and I have long been involved with oral tradition. I deeply believe in humanistic values, combating our culture of violence and greed, and art as a tool for change. I invite you to enter my website, learn about my books, read my poetry and look at my photographic images.  - Margaret Randall
