Join us for a screening of "In Search of Bengali Harlem" followed by a conversation with the directors, Vivek Bald and Alaudin Ullah, and Professor Manan Desai, associate professor of American Culture and English Language and Literature.

Challenging the monolithic idea of immigrants and processes of immigration, Vivek Bald and Alaudin Ullah’s In Search of Bengali Harlem relates the specific history of Bengali Muslim immigrants who arrived in mid-20th century Harlem, often marrying into Black American families. In this fascinating uncovering of New York (and American) history, in a post-9/11 world, emerges a resistance against being reduced to stereotypes, and against being restricted by the many borders we draw around ourselves. –Bedatri Choudhury
