Clifton Ross and Marcy Rein will read from their book “Until the Rulers Obey: Voices from Latin American Social Movements” at two Albuquerque events. Ross and Rein, the book’s editors, will be at Bookworks, 4022 Rio Grande NW, at 7 p.m. Thursday, March 27, and at the National Hispanic Cultural Center, 1701 Fourth SW, at 2 p.m. Saturday, March 29.

The book contains interviews with five dozen leaders and grassroots activists from 15 countries.  They are the voices from movements behind the social changes that have swept Latin American at the turn of the 20th century.

Ross is a translator, filmmaker and writer. He has worked in solidarity with Latin American social movements for 30 years. Rein is a writer, editor and organizer who has been involved with a wide range of social movements over several decades.

Their NHCC reading is seen as complementing the cultural center’s current exhibition “Getting Up Pa’l Pueblo: Tagging ASAR-Oaxaca Prints and Stencils.”
