This Week: Get your tickets to “Yo Miss! Teaching Inside the Cultural Divide!”

New York Immigration Coalition joins EarSay in presenting: Yo Miss! Teaching Inside the Cultural Divide, a new work by actress/human rights activist/educator Judith Sloan from November 3rd through November 6th at the Nuyorican Poets Café.

Teaching, acting, producing - when it comes to exploring the world through the streets of New York, it seems that Judith Sloan has done it all. Known for her collaborative multi-media project [with Warren Lehrer,] Crossing the BLVD: strangers, neighbors, aliens in a new america, Judith spent 20 years teaching and reporting at schools and jails where she encountered immigration, cultural clashes, and generation gaps. Now, she presents her accounts in a new play Yo Miss! Teaching Inside the Cultural Divide. Sloan is an award-winning playwright, radio producer, and performer. Yo Miss is a project of EarSay, a non-profit devoted to portraying uncelebrated stories. Judith’s work in Yo Miss! is described as “sometimes funny, sometimes sad, always truth-seeking performance” that “attempts to break down assumptions that divide…. residents of a polygot city who live in close proximity but come from conflicting worlds.

The NYIC's Director of Advocacy, Jackie Vimo, will be sitting on a post-show talk back panel with New York City Council Member, Julissa Ferreras, and Breakthrough Executive Director Mallika Dutt, after the Sunday 3PM show.
