This coming Sunday, April 23, Queens Memory is hosting an afternoon of story-telling and creativity at the Queens Museum. Join us from 2 to 5 pm for hands-on activities exploring the themes of migration and diversity in Queens!
Undergraduate students from the Design program at Queens College have created a collaborative banner that says “I Live Here” in some of the borough’s many spoken and written languages.
Activities at the event include finding your community on our giant puzzle map of Queens, writing a love letter to your neighborhood, and have a free portrait taken! The activities will be led by Bridget Bartolini of the Five Boro Story Project, Fernanda Espinosa of People’s Collective Arts/Colectivo de Arte Popular, and Annabel Short, creator of the 30th Ave: A Year in the Life of a Street blog. The event is free and open to the public.
There will also display archival photos relating to the history of diversity in Queens. This event is the culminating celebration of our NEH-funded “50 Years of Integration” series of community history events.

The One Club’s Here Are All The Black People is our highly anticipated annual multicultural creative career fair. The one-day event provides multicultural students, recent graduates, and creative professionals who are interested in exploring careers in advertising and design the opportunity to showcase their talent to top agencies in the industry. AND YES, IT”S OPEN TO EVERYONE.
HAATBP was created after a panel discussion between advertising greats, Jimmy Smith and Jeff Goodby, as they discussed the lack of diversity in the creative departments in advertising agencies. At which time, Jeff asked, “Where Are All The Black People?” Jimmy, Jeff, and The One Club decided to answer the question and launched the event, “Here Are All The Black People.” HAATBP provides real-world solutions to the lack of diversity in the advertising and design industry’s creative departments. This year, we are opening this event up to aspiring Strategist and Account Planners/Managers.

Many participants have walked away from the event with a second interview or a lead to an internship opportunity.
