Aviva Chomsky

Prof. Aviva Chomsky joined Mickey for a Zoom lecture on April 29, an event presented by Project Censored and KPFA radio. The occasion was the release of her new book, Central America’s Forgotten History: Revolution, Violence, and the Roots of Migration, which revisits the history of how the region was impacted by US imperialism and why it is so important to remember, especially the wars of the 1980s and their ongoing consequences.This week’s program presents excerpts from that event.

Aviva Chomsky, eldest daughter of Noam Chomsky, is professor of history at Salem State University in Massachusetts; her field is Latin American studies. She’s written extensively about immigration, and also has been involved in Latin American solidarity issues for over a quarter-century.
