Immigrant Heritage Week is upon us again!

Tuesday, April 13th, 2010

A few quick notes that have been piling up:

Immigrant Heritage Week will be celebrated from April 15 to 21 this year. Wish I had time to say more about it.

Photojournalist Dave Sanders has been documenting Kensington’s community of immigrants from Darfur, Sudan, for over a year. See the Times for more info.

Like the local Haitian community, New York Chileans also had reason to seek each other out after the February 27 earthquake in Chile, but they are relatively few (15,000) and scattered around the region. Read more about it in the March 5 Times.
