Event description

Description

Learn about how a landmark immigration law, the 1965 Immigration and Nationality Act (known as the “Hart-Celler Act”), acted as a catalyst for driving new waves of immigration to Brooklyn in the latter half of the 20th Century. Community experts from the Museum of Chinese in America, Mano a Mano, and Brooklyn Arts Council’s Folk Arts Archive will explore the Hart-Celler Act’s impact through the lens of various ethnic communities that have made Brooklyn their home since 1965. This day includes hands-on activities exploring how ethnography and oral history can be used as research tools in the classroom. Educators will take away information on where to locate history, archival resources, and educational programs about these communities and more across the borough. (CTLE Credits: 5)
