Crossing the BLVD: strangers, neighbors, aliens in a New America

With Judith Sloan

A special performance, occurring in New York City’s Immigrant History week, of Crossing the BLVD by Judith Sloan, featuring stories, sounds and images of new immigrants and refugees. Discussion will follow with Judith Sloan, Warren Lehrer, and Camilo Perdomo asylee and now permanent legal resident from Colombia who escaped anti-gay vigilante groups and is featured in the Crossing the BLVD project in the RUN FOR YOUR LIFE section.

“Immigrant life in Queens, as told in the intimate, rich, comic, ironic and sad stories so often seen but not heard in America’s big cities…” The Washington Post

 

“Crossing the BLVD boldly carries the tradition of oral history into the 21st Century… electrifying collage of voices, faces, and spirits, capturing the true elasticity and inclusiveness of American culture.”Eve Ensler, author, oral historian, performer The Vagina Monologues
