The Missing Stories
Location: Livingston Public Library, 10 Robert H. Harp Drive, Livingston, NJ
In 1883, Anandibai Joshee, a young woman from a small city in western India arrived in Roselle, New Jersey. She had traveled thousands of miles, overcoming incredible physical and emotional hardships. She arrived with a purpose and eventually became the first South Asian woman in the world with a degree in western medicine.
South Asians have been a presence in the US for more than 130 years, but their stories are mostly unknown. In this session, participants will engage in an interactive discussion about underepresented populations, specifically examining South Asians, and how sharing community stories can help create a more inclusive future.
The Missing Stories is presented by Samip Mallick, Co-Founder & Executive Director of the South Asian American Digital Archive (SAADA), and part of the Livingston Listens program series. The Missing Stories is funded by the New Jersey Council for the Humanities.
