EDUCATION FOR LIBERATION:
The Role of Political Education in the PAIGC's Struggle for Independence and the Lessons for Today

* African Party for the Independence of Guinea and Cape Verde (PAIGC)

Center for Political Education and LeftRoots are proud to host a conversation with thinker and activist Sónia Vaz Borges. Sónia, who is of Cape Verdean descent, is a leading scholar on the education programs at the core of Amilcar Cabral's national liberation struggle in Cape Verde and Guinea Bissau during the 1960s and 70s. Sónia will help us develop a useful understanding of what militant education is, how it worked in the international struggle against colonialism in Africa, and its lessons for movement building today.

Steve Williams of LeftRoots and Rachel Herzing of The Center for Political Education will join Sónia to highlight some of the challenges and opportunities for theory, strategy, and unity facing our movements in the Bay Area and beyond.
