April 21 & 28: Virtual Live Talk with Queens Public Library

Celebrate Immigrant Heritage: AAPI History And Storytelling With Illegal: A New Musical

During this live event, Composers Skyler Chin and Sita Sunil will give a presentation about Asian American history, how historical anti-Asian bias and racism have shaped today’s society, and how we can use storytelling to respond to pandemic-era anti-Asian hate, combat prejudice, instigate justice, and inspire empathy. To demonstrate the power of storytelling in action, a few songs from Illegal will be performed; and the presentation will conclude with a Q&A with the musical’s creative team. This event will be presented twice, on 4/21 and 4/28, at 6:30-7:30pm.
