21 Pell Street Awarded Grant for New Chinatown Programming
Some funds are headed to 21 Pell Street.
In April, The Lower Manhattan Cultural Council awarded the program with $4,500, monies that will be used to support and expand the free community programming in Chinatown.
Founded by legendary late photographer Corky Lee, 21 Pell Street showcases the talent and contributions of Asian Americans through photo exhibits, traveling exhibits, films, guest speakers, local authors and more, with an aim to illuminate the historical impact of Asian Americans. It’s headquartered inside the First Chinese Baptist Church.
Programming had been paused since January 2020 due to the pandemic; with the grant now secured, programming is set to resume by late summer.
