Freedom Forum 2022
Sunday September 18th
4pm in the Wyandanch Plaza
Wyandanch, NY 11798
We invite you to join us for a live presentation of multicultural, intergenerational storytellers.
Voices from the community share narratives from their lives and the impact and triumph of living on "uneven" land.
Intertwined through the quilt of stories are Indigenous, African and Latinx drums, punctuated by a chorus of acapella voices.
In rhythm they beat back the terror inflicted on the terra (land) and its people.
A Herstory production artistically presented by Renee Joshua-Porter.
