Death and resurrection are the twin themes this week on Latin Pulse. The theme of resurrection is provided just ahead of the Easter season through an examination of the growth of evangelical Protestantism throughout Latin America. The program looks at the explosive growth of pentecostal denominations in Brazil, Central America and other parts of the region. News of the death of Nobel-prize winning author Gabriel Garcia Marquez has cast the region into mourning for this important writer. The program reflects on the life and legacy of Garcia Marquez and discusses how he made magical realism a key form in literature.
The program includes in-depth interviews with:
Andrew Chesnut of Virginia Commonwealth University; and
Nuria Vilanova of American University.
Executive Producer: Rick Rockwell;
