Situated in neighborhoods that have historically been, and continue to be, home to many newcomers to New York, City Lore and The Bronx Museum of the Arts have come together to celebrate their immigrant communities with a special edition of Bronx Stories.
The Bronx Museum will present the second of a two-part collaborative series that hosts storytellers, poets, and musicians performing works inspired by their (im)migrant experiences and the exhibition currently on view. The event will culminate with an open-mic portion, for which members of the audience will be invited to share their own short stories, poems, and songs.
and hosted by
Comedian Bill Santiago
