For millions of immigrants, their American journeys began in one of New York’s oldest and most storied neighborhoods, the Lower East Side. Today, neighborhood heritage sites Henry Street Settlement, Museum at Eldridge Street, Museum of Chinese in America (MOCA), and the Tenement Museum remain dedicated to the preservation and celebration of immigrant and migrant experiences past and present. Together, these sites explore how immigrant and migrant communities across New York have shaped our collective history.
Looking to build a more inclusive curriculum? Considering ways to integrate narratives which reflect the diversity of your classrooms? Join us for a special Educator Open House on Monday, October 16 from 4-6 PM. You’ll have the opportunity to meet fellow colleagues and hear from the museum education staff from all these sites, as they share programming, activities, and resources that can supplement your immigration units and much more.
Hosted at the Dale Jones Burch Neighborhood Center at Henry Street Settlement, located at 269 Henry Street, New York, NY 10002.
