Walking Tour #2: East Village with Prithi Kanakamedala (Platform 2018)
*This tour is cancelled due to unforeseen circumstances*
Platform 2018 considers the cultural, dance, and architectural histories of the many peoples who’ve inhabited downtown NYC and beyond. Each week the Platform will feature a commissioned walking tour led by an artist or scholar.
Prithi Kanakamedala is Assistant Professor in the Department of History at Bronx Community College of the City University of New York. Kanakamedala’s tour will delve into her research interests including the Black Atlantic, New York’s nineteenth-century free Black communities, and the city’s historic material culture.
Danspace Project will confirm exact meeting location for the tour approximately one week in advance.
