Dr. Jennifer Lynn Stoever, Etienne Charles, Dr. Raymond Codrington, Cynthia Copeland, and Casey Benjamin

Presented in collaboration with New York Philharmonic and Macaulay Honors College

The Unanswered Questions is a conversation series presented in collaboration with the New York Philharmonic and Macaulay Honors College exploring complex social topics raised by the Orchestra’s programming. The series’ season begins with Is This Land Our Land?—a discussion on the history of the San Juan Hill and Weeksville neighborhoods, NYC communities of color that thrived with culture and tradition but were systematically dismantled, leaving behind a heritage of displacement and erasure that echoes to the present day. Weeksville Heritage Center’s President Dr. Raymond Codrington moderates a conversation with SUNY Binghamton professor and scholar Dr. Jennifer Lynn Stoever, President of The Institute for the Exploration of Seneca Village History and historian Cynthia Copeland, and Etienne Charles—the performer and composer whose Lincoln Center-commissioned work inspired by the San Juan Hill story will reopen David Geffen Hall when it is premiered in October in collaboration with the New York Philharmonic.

The event on October 1 at Weeksville Heritage Center features Casey Benjamin, who ties art to location with a nonstop session constructed with select music from New York artists only. Come dance to hits and deep cuts that represent the vibrancy of NYC culture!
