Vocalist Marcelle Davies-Lashley Concludes our Big Read Celebration!

Thursday, December 20, 2012

The Sr. Director of Community Engagement & Audience Development, Brenda Williams-Butts, opens the event by introducing singer Marcelle Davies-Lashley.
Singer Marcelle Davies-Lashley begins the discussion of “Their Eyes Were Watching God” with students from PS 47 The American Sign Language and English Secondary School.
Students from PS 47 chose to spend their half-a-day off from school in The Greene Space to talk about Hurston.
WNYC Volunteers, Cathy and Alice, watch videos from “Their Eyes Were Watching God.”
“In Their Eyes Were Watching God,” Janie was only 17 years-old when she was married to her first husband. Here’s the expression students get from their parents on the topic of dating.
Marcelle makes a pinky-promise with students to continue the conversation in their class.
