Members of New York’s African community and friends will gather this Saturday at Davidson Community Center, Bronx, for the second installment of an ongoing conversation on first generation integration in America. "As new Americans, there are constant tensions in growing up in an immigrant household while navigating American life,” said Kemi Seriki, Community Organizer and parent of a first generation American.

“If our children are truly the future, then we must make space to hear their struggles and realize they may know best how to overcome them in a society where cultures collide. Growth comes from understanding that a new home requires new thinking and ways of living. Come and listen to our youth on Saturday tell us in their own words what they need to thrive.”

When: 3pm on Saturday, July 28, 2018.

Where: Davidson Community Center, 2038 Davidson Avenue, Bronx, New York, 10453.
