More than 50 community members gathered at Biblioteca Criolla on Monday, May 1, 2017 for an evening of history, music, and conversation. Scholar Tim Lawrence, author of Life and Death on the New York Dance Floor, 1980-1983, shared his deep knowledge and passion about New York’s dance and party scene in the tumultuous and productive years of the early 1980s – a time and place that left an indelible mark on our region and on popular culture throughout the world. The evening’s soundtrack was provided by Wyse Rodriguez and Saint Sanchez of Soulful Cypher, a Jersey City organization that produces free events for DJs, poets, spoken word artists, and dancers. Refreshments were generously provided by PJ Ryan’s Squared.
