1 Drexel Dr., NOLA 70125

The Xavier University Division of Fine Arts and the Humanities invites you to attend an Evening with Robert and Maud Cox who will be on hand for the screening of a recently released documentary entitled, Messenger on a White Horse. They will also answer questions about their lives in Argentina during 1970‘€™s.

Messenger on a White Horse tells the story of former Buenos Aires Herald editor, Robert Cox and his unswerving defiance of Argentina‘€™s last military dictatorship. At a time when most local media chose to turn a blind eye to the reports of torture and forced disappearances, Cox published hundreds of articles about the military‘€™s crimes. His wife Maud was a constant source of physical and moral support. However, because of threats to her and her children she eventually convinced Bob to leave the country.

The film (55 minutes) and after-talk will take place on Monday, March 5 at 7:00PM in the Department of Music Recital Hall. Xavier University is located at 1 Drexel Dr., NOLA 70125 The Department of Music is housed in the Blanche MacDonald Francis Music Building (Building 10.)

This event is free and open to the public. For further information please contact Dr. Wilfred Delphin at 504 520-7598.
