Roxanne Dunbar-Ortiz Blood On the Border: A Memoir of the Contra War

With Blood on the Border, Roxanne Dunbar-Ortiz presents the third volume in her critically-acclaimed memoir. She vividly recounts memories of the contra war in Nicaragua, chronicling the US-sponsored terror inflicted on the people of Nicaragua following the election of the Sandinistas that ousted the Reagan darling and vicious dictator Somoza. Her rich political analysis of this history bears the mark of a trained historian, but she also writes from her perspective as an intrepid activist who spent time throughout the 1980s in the war-torn country. She makes painfully clear the connections between what many US Americans only remember vaguely as the Iran-Contra "affair" and current US aggression in the Americas, the Middle East, and around the world.

Roxanne will read from her new book and answer questions following a discussion afterward.
