Migration Stories Dinner
captures community voices
On March 29th, 50 Bayview Hunters Point community members came together at Old Skool Cafe (a youth run restaurant) for the Migration Stories family dinner. MC'ed by Lawanda and Macio Dickerson, the event was an opportunity for intergenerational community members to share their family stories and delicious food from coveted family recipes. BAYCAT andPeabody Award winning independent producer, Davia Nelson of the Kitchen Sisters, documented these stories through audio and video. This is the first event leading up to Zaccho's Picture Bayview Hunters Point performances in October. Funding for this project is generously provided by the Kenneth Rainin Foundation.
Look for a SPECIAL ANNOUCEMENT on our next event verysoon!

For the first time, Sonya is gathering all her bungee enthusiasm and passing it on in a week of ridiculous technique and soaring foundations.
