Summer Reading: Wee the People

11:00 AM - 11:45 AM Friday, August 7, 2020


The body is a powerful pathway to freedom -- a vessel for storytelling, community, healing, and resistance in the face of injustice. Join Wee The People with special guest Jean Appolon Expressions (JAE) for an ALL-AGES interactive workshop of stories and movement celebrating Ibo, the Haitian dance of freedom that honors the breaking of chains from slavery. Get ready to move, feel, and learn with Breaking the Chains!


We invite children and their grownups to join us from home for a live program presented on Zoom.
