Description

Get to know the story of the Mirabal sisters, who led a revolution against Rafael Trujillos dictatorship in the Dominican Republic.

--

For over 30 years, thousands of people were imprisoned, tortured, and murdered under Rafael Trujillos dictatorship in the Dominican Republic. Three sisters would go on to lead an underground revolution. But while their courage inspired many, it threatened the man in power, and their lives would come to a tragic early end. Who were these brave women? Lisa Krause tells the story of Las Mariposas.

Lesson by Lisa Krause, directed by Toms Pichardo-Espaillat.
