Pedro X. Molina, an internationally acclaimed political cartoonist who fled Nicaragua with his family in December 2018, will reflect on his experiences, his cartooning, and current conditions in Nicaragua in a conversation with ICOA board member Barbara Adams on Friday, March 26, from 12 to 1:15 p.m.
The online presentation is part of the 2021 Finger Lakes Environmental Film Festival, or FLEFF. You can register for the event here.
In 2019, Molina won the prestigious Maria Moors Cabot Award from Columbia Journalism School in 2019 for “career excellence and coverage of the Western Hemisphere that furthers inter-American understanding.” In 2018, he won the Courage in Editorial Cartooning Award from Cartoonists Rights Network International and an Excellence in Journalism award from the Inter American Press Association.
In May, Molina will finish his terms as ICOA’s artist-in-residence and Visiting International Scholar in Residence at Ithaca College.
