On the cusp of the 50th anniversary of the Brazilian military coup, Latin Pulse
looks backward at the important history of Brazil and how it was altered by this Cold War military take-over. The program includes the views of a historian researching the coup and its after-effects and also of an academic who lived through the military policies and saw the changes as Brazil began to democratize again in the 1980s. The news segment of the program covers the labor unrest in Paraguay that has hit that country's economy.
The program includes in-depth interviews with:
Victoria Langland, the University of Michigan; and
Cristina Pacheco, of the State University of Paraiba.
Executive Producer: Rick Rockwell; and
Associate Producer: Megan Ekhaml.
