Part of the acclaimed PBS series Women, War & Peace, “The War We Are Living” reveals the struggles in Cauca, a mountainous region in Colombia’s Pacific southwest, where two extraordinary Afro-Colombian women are braving a violent struggle over their gold-rich lands. They are standing up for a generation of Colombians who have been terrorized and forcibly displaced as a deliberate strategy of war.
A panel discussion moderated by broadcast journalist Maria Hinojosa will follow with Clemencia Carabali and Francia Marquez, Afro-Colombian Leaders featured in the film; Pamela Hogan, co-writer of the film and co-creator of the PBS series; Gimena Sanchez, Senior Associate, Washington Office of Latin America; and Oriana Zill, producer of the film.
Hosted by Athena Center for Leadership Studies at Barnard, Black Communities Process, Fork Films, and the Washington Office of Latin America
