BxArts Factory, in partnership with the Bronx Music Heritage Center, collaborated with the Neighborhood Shopp Senior Center La Casa Boricua to bring you the stories of a group of senior citizens from our community.
Poets Peggy Robles-Alvarado, Bonafide Rojas, El David & Andres Chulisi Rodriguez will present original works inspired by their stories, including their journeys to the United States and their lives in the Bronx.
Additionally, artist and videographer Melanie Gonzalez will present a series of short video-stories/documentaries created to further highlight their stories. This event will also be the culmination of our art exhibition, Memories Un-Remembered: Thinking of Home (Longing).
