Asian and Pacific Islander Heritage Month: “A Village Called Versailles”
May 11 @ 12:00 pm – 12:30 pm
Join us to celebrate Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month with a free screening of Emmy-nominated film A Village Called Versailles, on Thursday, May 11, 2023, 12:00 to 2:00 PM, 3412 Crawford Street, Houston 77004.
In a New Orleans neighborhood called Versailles, a tight-knit group of Vietnamese Americans overcame obstacles to rebuild after Hurricane Katrina, only to have their homes threatened by a new government-imposed toxic landfill. “A Village Called Versailles” is the empowering story of how the Versailles people, who have already suffered so much in their lifetime, turn a devastating disaster into a catalyst for change and a chance for a better future.
This event is free and open to the public with donations encouraged. Free parking in Lot 9 at Holman and Crawford/Almeda. Registration required at: https://www.centerhealingracism.org/event/asian-american-and-pacific-islander-heritage-month-film-screening/
