A Conversation with Vitalina Luna and Marta Ramirez, Sisters-In-Law from Morazán, El Salvador
Union Theological Seminary's El Salvador Travel Seminar

Wed, 27 Feb, 2013 7:00 PM - 9:00 PM



This event will be a challenge to the listeners to think about the collective historical memories that shape their own experiences, and to ask whether the voices, stories, and memories of people like Vitalina and Marta have a place there. As a nation, we definitely have a place in the memories of Salvadoran peasants, whose children leave for the States to work and who fled from US-funded bombs during the armed conflict. In the spirit of theologian Metz, we are challenged to have a backwards-looking solidarity which dares to remember the suffering and dead. My vision for Vitalina and Marta's time here is that listeners will be offered a space to stretch their own imaginations and memories to encompass a broader swath of humanity, beginning with these two women.
 
This event is free and open to the public.
