UCABA - Lunch, Laugh, and Learn at Garifuna Flava

Come enjoy delicious Caribbean food and unpack the rich Black migration and immigration experience with the Association of Black Alumni club in Chicago. Join us to discuss books, films, music, and lived experiences. All are welcome!

Have you read the "The Warmth of Other Suns: The Epic Story of America's Great Migration" and have been dying to discuss it with other UChicago alumni? Well, you're finally in luck!
 

We look forward to seeing you at this intimate event where we will discuss the Black migration and immigrant experience as it is depicted in pop culture, literature, and politics compared to our personal lens and experiences over a delicious Caribbean meal. It is not required that you read "The Warmth of Other Suns: The Epic Story of America's Great Migration" to attend this lunch.
 

UChicago party guests are welcome to be seated beginning at 1:00 pm. Orders will be placed shortly after 1:30 pm. Before we enjoy our meal, the owners of Garifuna Flava will orient us to Garifuna culture and their own migration story. Curious minds and eager learners can find a brief documentary on the Garifuna people here.
 

Come learn, laugh, and enjoy lunch with us. Space is limited to 25 people and registration is required.
