Inspired by Nari Ward: We the People, we're hosting a series of conversations highlighting the first- and second-generation immigrant experience and representations of it in American media.
Think of this as your bi-weekly book club, but with less commitment. Every other week, a new moderator will pick a piece of media for you to read or watch. Then we’ll come together Tuesday evenings to discuss.
This event will be livestreamed via YouTube and Facebook. Closed captioning is available on the Facebook livestream.
July 21 6PM with Naghem Swade
August 4 with YaSi
August 18 with Danny Ramos
