Virtual Program | Migration Stories: Oral Histories, Literature, and the Power of Telling


Brooklyn Historical Society’s initiative “Muslims in Brooklyn” is grounded in a collection of 50 oral histories that represent Muslims of all ages and backrounds, life experiences and identities.

One topic touched upon repeatedly in these audio recordings is migration. Last year Penguin Random House published an anthology of migration literature titled The Penguin Book of Migration Literature: Departures, Arrivals, Generations, Returns. With these two rich resources as a springboard, this program invites participants to listen deeply to authentic voices on migration and share their own experiences and reactions. The program will draw upon the “Muslims in Brooklyn” website for the audio excerpts.

Presented in partnership with Culture Pass.
