CULTURE AND EVENTS    

Remembrance Today’s feature song is by Victor Jara, a singer, theatre director and activist from the South American country of Chile.  In the nineteen sixties and seventies, Victor Jara helped to create a new style of folk music that celebrated peace and social justice.  In 1973, the military took over the government of Chile and Victor Jara was arrested and brutally killed. His music became a symbol of the struggle for human rights and justice during the decades when military dictators ruled Chile and much of South America.  We remember him and others who stand for peace.
