S1. EP4. Sing Out Strong: Immigrant Voices in the ArtsThis podcast is hosted by Cerise Lim Jacobs.
The words immigrant activism and opera are seldom used together, but White Snake Projects is pioneering this cause. We talk to Cerise Lim Jacobs, Pulitzer Prize winning opera creator and librettist from the multicultural hub of Singapore whose latest opera, I Am A Dreamer Who No Longer Dreams, tackles head on issues of social justice and democracy, starting with immigration. Cerise also talks to composer and producer Xiren Wang about the particular challenges faced by the Asian American community in speaking out and being heard.
In this series, we bring you fresh knowledge and insight from the team at the Immigration Initiative at Harvard, led by our Director, Professor Roberto G. Gonzales, and featuring voices from the field. Join us as we get to know our neighbors through their stories.
This podcast is hosted by Dr Jennifer Allsopp and produced by Xiren Wang and Dr Jennifer Allsopp.
