How do we start conversations about immigration experiences? What can we learn about each other by listening?
Join us for an event with the Brooklyn Listening Project, a Brooklyn College oral history project in which students in a variety of classes are sent out to interview family, friends, neighbors and strangers. Jessica Siegel, project director, will lead a conversation with project participants about the project’s new exhibit “We Are Brooklyn: Immigrant Voices,” which draws upon oral histories with immigrants and children of immigrants and underscores the importance of sharing immigration stories with each other and the larger world.
Tenement Talks are free, but RSVPs are required.
