Please Join Us at the Launch of Mi Querido Barrio, an Oral History Project

Please join Melissa and the Caribbean Cultural Center African Diaspora Institute (CCCADI) for a special event to launch Mi Querido Barrio, an oral history project, which will give El Barrio/East Harlem residents an opportunity to help chronicle the neighborhood’s history for future generations.

The event will be held on Friday, June 11 from 6:00 – 8:00 p.m. at Sinergia (2082 Lexington Avenue, 4th Floor).

Recordings will be part of the opening exhibit of CCCADI’s new cultural space, to be opened in 2013.  All participants will receive a copy of their interview and can have it archived in the Library of Congress.

To schedule an interview or for more information, please e-mail mmvega@cccadi.org.
