The Gables offers educational programming to support their local immigrant community including Adult English Language and Citizenship preparation classes. They engage the wider community through stimulating, thoughtful, facilitated conversations, like this one, on immigration and other social justice issues.
This discussion will commemorate Hispanic Heritage Month with the screening of:
- She’s an American Child, by Rafael DeLeon, about Annabelle — a Dominican ‘DREAMer’ and her undocumented mother.
- Rhythms of Respect, by Katsyris Rivera-Kientz, about Jorge Arce — a Puerto Rican dancer, musician, educator, and cultural activist.
These two films will be a revealing look at two Boston-based stories and the challenges facing migrants and immigrants. Annabelle and her mother, for example, are still waiting for the Biden Administration to follow through on its campaign promise to provide residency for the millions of DREAMers and their families.
Filmmakers, subjects and CSFilm director, Michael Sheridan, will join the discussion.
September 19, 6-7pm, in-person
