    Featured Virtual Events

    Lower East Side Tenement Museum
    Loisaida Learning and the Fight for Equal Education
    Wednesday, February 2, 6:30– 7:30 p.m. ET
    Free to attend on Zoom

    On February 3, 1964, Black and Puerto Rican students across New York City staged the largest civil rights demonstration of the 1960s, a school boycott of nearly half a million people known as Freedom Day. The Tenement Museum presents a special free virtual tour exploring this momentous event and more through the stories of José Velez, who migrated with his family to New York from Puerto Rico in the 1950s. Look inside the home he grew up in, listen to family oral histories, and consider his youth on the Lower East Side—specifically his education, whether that was from school, his community, the media, or his mother, Ramonita Rivera Saez, who parented him by herself for most of her life. Through his story, we’ll consider the wider history of educating immigrant and migrant children in the U.S. and the role Puerto Ricans played to make education more equal for all.

    President Lincoln’s Cottage
    An Evening with Jonathan W. White
    Tuesday, February 15, 6:30 p.m. ET
    $10 to attend Zoom session

    President Lincoln's Cottage hosts the next installment of the virtual event series Scholar Sessions where historian Jonathan W. White will discuss his newest book, A House Built By Slaves: African-American Visitors to the Lincoln White House in conversation with Michael Atwood Mason, our CEO & Executive Director. The book rediscovers the forgotten story of how President Lincoln welcomed African Americans to his White House in America’s most divided and war-torn era. White illuminates why Lincoln’s then-unprecedented welcoming of African American men and women to the White House transformed the trajectory of race relations in the United States.

    Cliveden
    Finding Black Families: Stories from the Chew Family Papers

    Lower East Side Tenement Museum
    New York in Yiddish Song
    Thursday, January 20 from 6:30 – 7:45 p.m. ET
    Free to view on YouTube Live; donation suggested

    The Tenement Museum, with the YIVO Institute for Jewish Research, hosts the first-ever concert streamed live from inside historic 97 Orchard Street. Come explore New York City in the Yiddish imagination with musical performances from inside the recreated 1890s parlor of the Levine family, immigrants from Eastern Europe. Since the earliest days of Jewish immigration to the United States, the “Golden Land” beckoned to the Jewish masses of Eastern Europe as a land of freedom and opportunity, and these ideas quickly made their way into Yiddish songs. This concert will range from Sholem Aleichem’s 1892 lullaby which calls America a “Garden of Eden” for Jews, to songs about the realities of immigration, labor, and crime in turn-of-the-century New York City. The premiere of Pulitzer Prize-finalist Alex Weiser’s newly expanded song cycle in a dark blue night will round out the program.

    Musicologist Eric Crawford traces Gullah Geechee songs from their beginnings in West Africa to their height as songs for social change and Black identity in the 20th-century American South. While much has been done to study, preserve, and interpret Gullah culture in the Lowcountry and sea islands of South Carolina and Georgia, some traditions like the shouting and rowing songs have been all but forgotten. This work, which focuses primarily on South Carolina’s St. Helena Island, illuminates the remarkable history, survival, and influence of spirituals since the earliest recordings in the 1860s.
