Kapelosopohan: Jose Rizal, Andres Bonifacio and the Philippines

Posted by anakbayantoronto on October 29, 2009

Migrante Ontario invites you to the first session of
KAPELOSOPOHAN (Kapihan at Pilosopiya)

Jose Rizal, Andres Bonifacio
and the Philippines

rizal-bonifacio

We have invited a couple guest speakers to help start us off, but it’s not really about the speakers at all, but about the participants sharing their questions, thoughts, and knowledge with each other.

Who were these guys?  Why are the considered heroes?  Why are they also sometimes considered less than heroic?  Why did they matter?  And most importantly why do they still matter today?

You don’t have to know a lot about Philippine history, or the Philippines today, you just have to be curious and eager to discuss.

Speakers:

Caroline Mangosing, a descendant of Jose Rizal’s sister Olympia will share what she knows about her ancestor.   Caroline is the Exec Director of the Kapisanan Philippine Centre for Arts and Culture.  www.kapisanancentre.com

Joe Rivera is a Toronto based writer, and former lawyer.  He will be speaking about Andres Bonifacio.  You can read his writing here:  http://letterfromtoronto.blogspot.com
