YouTube video of the event

The 2010 bicentennial of Mexico’s independence and the centennial of its revolution offer an opportunity to explore the causes and principles behind these two great social upheavals and what they mean to contemporary Mexico.  The conflicts and contradictions of the past still help determine Mexico’s present.
