Kentoki: Kentucky Through Jewish Eyes, 1925
A Theatrical Reading with Commentary and Music
In 1925, Jewish immigrant I.J. Schwartz published a remarkable poem. Penned in Yiddish, and with nods to the freewheeling lyric style of Walt Whitman, Kentoki tells the moving story of Jewish family pioneers in Kentucky: a fresh new land of promise.
This event will feature commentary by scholar Dov-Ber Kerler and others, and music by the Louisville bluegrass-flavored klezmer band Lost Tribe. Free and open to the public. Reservations recommended: kentoki-tickets.eventbrite.com
