Who are your local matriarchs? How do young women lead in keeping diasporic movement, rhythms, and storytelling alive?
Join dancers Margia Shiriti of Bangladesh Academy of Fine Arts and Catherine Soliz Rey of Wabafu Garifuna Dance Theater in discussion on building community for and by Bangladeshi and Central American New Yorkers.
