My name is Becky Amato and I will be teaching a course at NYU called “(Dis)Placed Urban Histories.” The course takes place in the spring semester between the end of January and the beginning of May, 2016.I would like to invite you to serve as an important part of the course by helping us tell the history – your history – of Los Sures.
Here’s how you can help us:
At the end of the semester, the students will organize an exhibit about the people and personal histories of Los Sures at El Museo de Los Sures. The exhibit will be based mostly on the interviews, photographs, and other materials we produce in collaboration with you. All of the materials will also be catalogued in a digital exhibit that will feature your stories.
We hope that this project will give us all a chance to learn and listen. Many residents of Los Sures have little to no contact with NYU students, except in relation to the overwhelming and emotional processes of gentrification and displacement. Likewise, NYU students have very little understanding of the communities, like Los Sures, that have kept New York alive and working since before they were born. While this small effort will not stop displacement, it is one step toward preserving the legacy of self-determination, political activism, and community engagement that Los Sures represents. I hope you will join us!
