Mary Roldán, Professor of Latin American History, Hunter College and CUNY Graduate Center
In the 1950s and 1960s, the Catholic organization ACPO and its radio station Radio Sutatenza trained peasant leaders to do rural outreach in the wake of violence. Reworking religion, gender, politics, and the material reality of what it means to do development work, these ACPO-trained “apostles” tried to model a different kind of masculinity that was not about swagger and intimidation, but rather reason, tolerance, and persuasion.
This event is co-sponsored with the Boston University Center for the Humanities, Latin American Studies Program, and the Department of History of Art & Architecture
