Tuesday, May 14 at 5:30 p.m. – The Bi-National Arts Institute will host Beth Henson for a discussion of her recently released book Agrarian Revolt in the Sierra of Chihuahua, 1959-1965 at Bisbee’s Copper Queen Library. The early 1960s are remembered for the emergence of new radical movements. One such protest movement rose in the Mexican state of Chihuahua. With large timbering companies moving in on the forested sierra highlands, campesinos and rancheros did not sit by as their lands and livelihoods were threatened. Henson’s book is the story of how they organized and demanded agrarian rights—ultimately with deadly consequences.
