What We Carry: Stories of Buffalo’s Immigrant Women


Join us for an intimate evening of story-sharing featuring diverse, dynamic voices from across our community. 

Coming from different areas of the globe, with widely divergent traditions and expectations, these women and their foremothers have all made a new life in Buffalo. These personal stories reflect on what these women or their ancestors carried with them to Buffalo and how they carry on their family legacy today.

Tickets are $30 and include a reception following the program.

Student Tickets are available for $15 (must have valid student ID)
