Thrilled is the best way to describe the feeling that is
circulating among members of the planning committee, as we prepare to host
Cuban Filmmaker Gloria Rolando and her new
film "1912 Voces para un Silencio/1912:
Breaking the Silence," as the feature of the Herstory Independent
series, here in Atlanta. As the signature benefit event
for the Mildred Grant Skillman Herstory Educational Scholarship Fund,
we have been working diligently to insure that the film is viewed by a
wide range of audiences, while Ms. Rolando visits from March 20 - April
6, 2013. Over the course of three weeks, our mission is to highlight
the power of history in daily life and to recognize the scholastic
significance of African Diaspora research and historiography.
Cinnamon Traveler Heritage Trust is excited to present the
U.S. premier of the trilogy in its entirety on March 23, 2013 at 5:00 p.m.
at the Auburn
Avenue Research Library, Atlanta, GA. The full three chapters of
"1912: Voces para un Silencio/1912: Breaking the Silence" will then screen
on three nights, Wednesday, Thursday 3/27, 3/28 and Saturday 3/30/2013, at
the Southwest Arts Center Black Box Theater, 915 New Hope Road, Atlanta,
GA. In addition to the public screenings, Ms. Rolando will be speaking in
academic forums and is available for interviews, private screenings and

Cuba at the turn of the twentieth century.
