Our six-week lecture series uncovering Latin America's long history of the musicians who have defined their art through progressive movements of social change.

This is what SF/Arts curator Betsy Crabtree had to say about Sounds of Resistance with John Santos: Cuba :

The Museum of the African Diaspora continues its lecture series on Latin American musicians, hosted by John Santos, with a look at Puerto Rico and the island’s symbiotic relationship with Cuba; in particular their shared colonial history of resistance. Santos explores the Afro-Puerto Rican styles of Bomba and Plena, that demonstrate resistance against slavery and oppression. $20.
