  • Coming to Malden: Immigrants Past and Present: A Celebration of National Welcoming Week
    When: 2:00 pm- 3:30 pm
    <p>Harvard professor Dr. Henry Louis Gates, Jr. states, “if you scratch an American family, sooner or later, you’ll find an immigrant ancestor.”  Throughout our city’s history, Malden has been strengthened and shaped by the contributions made by immigrants: from the variety of main street businesses to our cultural parades and traditions.  Each immigrant has a unique story to share, born of their experiences in their country of origin and their motivation to risk all to come to the United States. This program will explore some of Malden’s most fascinating immigrant stories of struggle and resilience that helped create one of the most culturally diverse communities in the Northeast.  The program will be held on Monday, September 14 at 2 p.m. followed by Q & A and time to share your own personal or family’s journey.   <br></p><p>Speakers include Malden Historical Society President John Tramondozzi, Mai Du of the Wah Lum Kung Fu and Tai Chi Academy and founder of the Greater Malden Asian American Community Coalition (GMAACC), Diane Portnoy,founder and CEO of The Immigrant Learning Center, Inc. (The ILC), and hosted by The ILC Public Education Institute Director Denzil Mohammed  and Malden Library Director Dora St. Martin.</p><p>Through Welcoming Week, organizations and communities bring together immigrants, refugees, and long-time residents to build strong connections and affirm the importance of welcoming and inclusive places in achieving collective prosperity.  At a time when political rhetoric has deepened divisions, and the COVID-19 pandemic has renewed anti-immigrant sentiment, Welcoming Week reminds us to double down on our inclusive vision and find new ways to bring together people across lines of difference to develop greater understanding and mutual support.</p><p>The program is co-sponsored by The Immigrant Learning Center and the Malden Public Library: </p><p><a href="https://www.facebook.com/pg/ImmigrantLearningCenter/events/">https://www.facebook.com/pg/ImmigrantLearningCenter/events/</a></p&gt;

  • The Group Chat featuring the Improbable Players
    When: 4:00 pm- 5:00 pm
    <p>Join us on Friday, September 18th at 4:00 p.m.  The Improbable Players is a theater troupe made up of young people in recovery. Their performances, based on real-life, include a talk back session in which audience members can ask questions of the actors about the play and about their struggles with addiction.  “The Group Chat” follows four friends during their first year out of high school. As one friend begins to use alcohol to deal with stress, the other friends in the group struggle to understand the true nature of addiction and how they can help. This play explores how addiction can affect relationships, how to talk to someone you love when you feel concerned about their use of drugs and alcohol, and ultimately, the different pathways to recovery.  Ideal for teens and the adults who care about them, the audience will be able to log on to the performance through Zoom to watch and then interact with the members of Improbable Players.  The performance is free and supported by the Adelaide Breed Bayrd Foundation.</p><p>You are invited to a Zoom webinar.<br>When: Sep 18, 2020 4:00 PM Eastern Time (US and Canada)<br>Topic: “The Group Chat”  Malden Public Library 9/18/20 4:00 pm</p>
