Event description

Description

While Brooklyn is widely known as home to one of the largest Caribbean diasporas in the world, lesser known is the presence of the Guyanese-American community, the 5th largest immigrant community in NYC. Join three of Guyana’s leading female literary voices to explore the politics and role of migration in Brooklyn’s dynamic community. Gaiutra Bahadur (Coolie Woman), Natalie Hopkinson (A Mouth is Always Muzzled), and Rosalind Kilkenny McLymont (The Guyana Contract) will also reflect on the importance of Guyanese women who, since the 1950s to present, have been a driving force in migration from the Caribbean. Moderated by Grace Aneiza Ali, Assistant Professor, NYU’s Department of Art & Public Policy.
