Arts, Culture & Fun: For Once In My Life
Friday, January 14, 2011
6:00 p.m.–8:00 p.m.
Join the Bronx Arts, Culture & Fun for a screening of the Emmy award winning PBS Independent Lens series. This month we will screen and discuss the film For Once in My Life. This film shows 28 musicians and singers who all have severe mental and physical disabilities, and perform in a group called the Spirit of Goodwill Band, which challenges preconceived notions of what it means to be disabled.
