Teaching Peace: The Unorthodox Legacy of Colma, First Lady of the Revolution Bridge of Life 11:35AM

Teaching Peace: The Unorthodox Legacy of Colma(15)

For more than 20 years Colman McCarthy, a self-described vegan, pacifist, and anarchist, has been teaching peace in schools across the D.C.-Metropolitan area. His subversive message and teaching style has inspired, provoked, and transformed the lives of students and faculty lucky enough to know him.

First Lady of the Revolution(67)

While visiting an aunt and uncle in the exotic countryside of Costa Rica, a young Southern belle from Alabama accepted a ride on the back of a motorcycle belonging to a charismatic local farmer—a ride that would propel her down narrow mountain roads and into history.

First Lady of the Revolution is the remarkable story of Henrietta Boggs, who fell in love with a foreign land and the man destined to transform its identity. Her marriage to Jose´ “Don Pepe” Figueres in 1941 led to a decade-long journey through activism, exile, political upheaval and, ultimately, lasting progressive reforms.

First Lady of the Revolution is not only a depiction of the momentous struggle to shape Costa Rica’s democratic identity; it's also a portrayal of how a courageous woman escaped the confines of a traditional, sheltered existence to expand her horizons into a new world and live a life she never imagined.
