"Connections" Features Photos from El Salvador

10/29/2008

The culture and politics of today’s El Salvador are captured in photographs exhibited alongside a historical view of the Central American nation in Connections: Suffolk University Keeps Moakley Legacy Alive in El Salvador, at Suffolk University’s Adams Gallery Nov. 1, 2008, through Jan. 12, 2009

The exhibit presents a look at the ongoing relationship between Suffolk University and the Salvadoran people, part of the late Congressman John Joseph Moakley’s legacy to his alma mater.

Moakley played an important role in moving El Salvador beyond repression and rebellion to peace. In doing so, he forged a lasting relationship with the people of El Salvador.

The exhibit features photographs from Suffolk University service-learning efforts in Boston-area communities and in El Salvador.

Suffolk University students and faculty visit El Salvador annually, retracing Joe Moakley’s path from San Salvador to rural villages. Along the way they have met officials, former guerrillas and witnesses who assisted Moakley in the congressional investigation that helped pave the way to peace in El Salvador.

An encore showing of El Congresista: Joe Moakley en El Salvador complements the photo exhibit.  This display of photos and documents drawn from the John Joseph Moakley Archive explores El Salvador, the civil war, and the conflict’s impact on the Salvadoran people.
