At Brooklyn Historical Society This Week

Tomorrow (Monday, June 27) evening at 6:30 p.m. Lloyd Handwerker, grandson of Nathan Handwerker, the immigrant from Poland who arrived in Brooklyn in 1912 practically penniless and with no English, “and went on to start a food empire that remains a household name a century later”, will be at Brooklyn Historical Society to screen and discuss his documentary film about his grandfather, Famous Nathan, and to sign copies of his book. The event is free but you must reserve tickets here.

June is both Pride Month and Caribbean Heritage Month, and on Wednesday evening, June 29th BHS, in conjunction with caribBEING, presents a screening of filmmaker Selena Blake’s Taboo…Yardies, which examines “the socioeconomic and sociopolitical environment in Jamaica that cultivates violence against gays, lesbians, and transgender people.” Admission is free, but you must reserve tickets here.
