Get up and dance with films about immigrant cultural activists

This week’s theme: Immigrant Contributions! Experience the impact new immigrants have on our culture, economy and social fabric. Get inspired by Puerto Rican cultural activist Jorge Arce and Haitian choreographer Jean Appolon.

Included are discussion questions and additional resources to deepen your understanding of immigration issues.
