A View from Afar: Angelenos Bear Witness to September 11th

Every Wednesday throughout the run of September 11: Bearing Witness to History, the National Museum will host gallery talks featuring a diverse group of community leaders, artists, activists, and educators. Using a specific object from the exhibition as their starting point, each will reflect upon the larger social, political, and cultural implications of 9/11.

The series begins with a performance by one of the leading taiko drummers in the United States, KENNY ENDO, and noted dancer/choreographer CHENG-CHIEH YU.
