"Eddie’s Perejil" is a gripping solo play written and performed by Edward Paulino about a working-class Dominican-American college student who stumbles upon a document describing a long-forgotten genocide known as the 1937 Haitian Massacre by Dominicans.
Edward Paulino, professor of global history at John Jay College, CUNY, co-founded Border of Lights, an organization that commemorates the 1937 genocidal Haitian massacre and promotes solidarity between Haitians and Dominicans. He serves on the board of the Northern Manhattan Coalition for Immigration Rights. He is also the author of "Dividing Hispaniola: The Dominican Republic's Border Campaign against Haiti, 1930-1961" (2016).
Following the performance, Professor Paulino and director Samantha Galarza will hold a question and answer session with the audience.
