The seniors of Grace Agard Harewood Neighborhood Senior Center have stories to tell!

This is a diverse group of Brooklynites who will present you with real life stories on subjects ranging from true love, to travel, family and life in Brooklyn and beyond. They have been crafting their stories with story coaches Cyndi Freeman, Dawn J. Fraser and Meliora Dockery as part of the SU- CASA artist in residency program. We are proud to bring you two live performances celebrating the work they have created!

Featuring stories from Ellis Pough, Joan White, Myrtle Preseod, Arthur Douse and others!

This project is the subject of a documentary by filmmaker Amy Grumbling that will air on Brooklyn Free Speech tv .
