Voices of Lefferts: Issue One Launch Celebration!
With readings and conversation by issue contributors Andrea Baker, Frederick Johnson, Frank Marchese, John Munnelly, Art Schaffer, and Norma Williams
Voices of Lefferts is a community writing journal and documentary project that celebrates, engages, and preserves the historic Brooklyn neighborhood of Prospect Lefferts Gardens. Combining writing, photography and art, Voices of Lefferts documents the working-class, multiracial, predominantly immigrant West Indian community in a time of rapid change, development and displacement, and ultimately aims to contribute to political and cultural discussion and debate in PLG-Flatbush. In honor of its first issue, Voices of Lefferts presents a program of readings and discussion by contributors, in an evening celebrating the voices, lives, and stories of our neighborhood.
