Join us, and celebrate [Sense]ation Day, February 21, 2019. Admission is free of charge. Our activities include:

Wee the People present: Haitian Colors, Haitian Heroes/ Koulè Ayiti, Ewo Ayiti
10:30 am – 12:00 pm

Celebrate the colors of Haiti and heroes of Haitian Revolution with a special vacation week workshop, The Colors of Haiti / Ayiti Nan Plen Koulè! 
Join Boston-based social justice project Wee The People for this fun, family-friendly event, featuring an interactive story time, slide show, music, and Haitian Heroes craft activity — plus a special giveaway of the prize-winning 2018 book Auntie Luce’s Talking Paintings.

Rich with Haitian history and heroes, Auntie Luce tells the story of Ti Chou, a Haitian-American girl who cherishes the unusual bond she has with her aunt, a painter who lives in Haiti. As she explores her parents’ homeland in all its colors, Ti Chou begins to see herself in a new way, tracing her own identity through her aunt’s brush.
