HARVEST OF EMPIRE: The Untold Story of Latinos in America

 


 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Based on the groundbreaking book by award-winning journalist Juan González (also co-host of Democracy Now!), Harvest of Empire reveals the direct connection between the long history of covert U.S. intervention in Latin America and the unprecedented wave of migration that is transforming our nation's cultural and economic landscape. From the wars for territorial expansion that gave the U.S. control of Puerto Rico, Cuba and more than half of Mexico, to the covert operations that imposed oppressive military regimes in the Dominican Republic, Guatemala, Nicaragua and El Salvador, Harvest of Empire unveils a moving human story that is not taught in our schools and largely unknown to the great majority of citizens in the U.S. (90 mins) http://harvestofempiremovie.com/

Harvest of Empire attempts to fill in the gaps." - Stephanie Merry, The Washington Post
