Storytellers, poets, and musicians perform works inspired by their immigrant experiences

Dr. Annecy Baez was born in the Dominican Republic, but grew up in a mostly Jewish neighborhood in the Bronx during the 1970s. She said she liked hearing the stories of the people she lived with and even took a Jewish literature class in high school, which she loved. But she said she couldn't find stories that she could connect to.
