Teresa Mendez-Faith Shares Compelling Story of Family and a Dictatorship with The Boston Globe

The Mendez Family in 1955The Boston Globe interviewed Teresa Mendez-Faith, professor of Modern Languages and Literature, upon the death of General Alfredo Stroessner, the brutal former dictator of Paraguay who forced her father and family into a lifetime of exile.

The story ran Aug. 31 and can be found on the Web site, along with a photo gallery. You can hear Mendez-Faith discuss her father, Epifanio Mendez Fleitas — a dissident considered enemy numero uno of Stroessner — and listen to music composed by him. She also discussed the topic during an interview on New England Cable News.

Professor Mendez-Faith was also featured in the spring 2005 issue of Portraits, the college's alumni magazine, in an article titled "Keeping the Faith: Professor’s Work Inspired by Father."
