Educator Resources On the Way!

We continue to do teacher workshops with Maestra and are expanding our study guide materials to better support educators who are using Maestra in their classrooms. All study guide materials will be available for free download from the Maestra website. Please contact us if you have ideas, requests or want to participate. 

Un Año sin Domingos

We are delighted that the archival photos and testimonies collected for the Maestra film over the 10 years have found a new life  in the book “Un Año sin Domingos”, which launched at the Havana International Book Fair in February. Published by Aurelia Ediciones from Spain, the book was conceived by Catherine Murphy and Carlos Torres-Cairo, edited by Esther Perez and produced by Lilian Lombera, with a foreword by leading Afro-Cuban woman poet Nancy Morejón. 

The book is available for purchase 

Catherine Interviewed on Tavis Smiley

In April, Catherine was featured on Tavis Smiley. They discuss the history of  US - Cuba relations and how it informs the current moment. Enjoy!
We are currently raising funds to continue  spreading the Maestra project and to expand the work of the Literacy Project in documenting the role of literacy in social justice movements across the Americas.
