Join us for this Bronx Rising! as we look into the rich and complicated history of the island of Hispaniola – today shared by Haiti and the Dominican Republic.
The night begins with a screening of Birthright Crisis, the 2013 award-winning documentary about the plight of Haitians in the DR, followed by a Q&A with director Miriam Neptune. Live music by Yasser Tejeda & Palotré will get your groove on. An infectiously rhythmic and cutting-edge group originally from the Dominican Republic, their fusion of Dominican roots music with Jazz, Blues, Funk, and Rock will have us on our feet!
