BLUE HILL— Brooklin resident Carlos Enrique Maibeth-Mortimer will give a presentation on the little-known history that connects Nicaragua and its people to the world on Saturday, August 19th at 3:00 PM. He will discuss Nicaragua’s engaging, often conflict-prone geopolitics, both past and present. He will also take an in-depth look at the ethno-cultural divides that are at the heart of the current conflict in Nicaragua’s frontier and their direct parallels with Maine. The presentation will end with an inside look at the school Carlos recently founded in Nicaragua, that provides language lessons and meals to child refugees.
