Putting a face to the stories
Saturday, April 14, 5 p.m., Sol Collective, no cover
Many of us can’t forget what 45 has said about those who cross the U.S.-Mexico border. In the wake of insults and a lack of understanding around the lives of immigrants, artists and storytellers have been inspired to combat xenophobia. Challenging Exclusion | Humanizando la Deportación is a multimedia project that puts the people who have been deported in charge of their own narratives. In more than 40 videos collected in part by UC Davis, we hear stories of families chasing the American Dream, sometimes being pulled apart in the pursuit. The interactive installation and exhibit will be on display through 5/2, with the World Café opening reception (4/14) kicking off a month of activities and conversations around immigration. 2574 21st Street.
