Open Veins of Latin America Red Library: A Political Education Podcast for Today's Left

    • Education

Part 1 of Red Library's Revolutionary Politics in Central and South America Series
Comrade Rhie joins us in the library this week to work through the fire and beauty that is Eduardo Galeano's Open Veins of Latin America.
As this is the introductory episode to our series, we focus on distilling the structural and historical factors that have shaped politics in Central and South America such as colonization, capitalism, and racism throughout the last 5 centuries. We try to balance the political economic analysis offered by Galeano with staying true to his poetic descriptions of the untold suffering inflicted on Central and South America throughout centuries of colonial and imperial expansion. I think we pull it off quite well.
