Streaming Media

Description

Working in Nicaragua with Witness for Peace from 1985 to 1990 documenting the effects of the U.S. funded Contra War on the civilian population, Paul photographed the war. In 2002, he and his partner, Pam Fitzpatrick, began return trips to Nicaragua searching for the people he previously photographed. In 2011, this culminated in the publishing of a compelling bilingual photo/testimony book, "Nicaragua: Surviving the Legacy of US Policy." After a brief history of the Contra War, Dix and Fitzpatrick will talk about the genesis of the book and share testimonies of people who, otherwise, would have disappeared into the amnesia hole of history.
