A new series from the JCC East Bay featuring the poems, songs, and artistic reflections of our area’s youngest, freshest, and inspiring new voices. This month features Ariel Luckey, performing bits from Amnesia, his new interdisciplinary play, which reveals America’s forgotten immigrant roots and investigates the role of race at the border. Tracing Luckey’s Jewish family’s escape from a Russian police raid in the 1880s and their subsequent immigration to the United States, Amnesia explores the historical context and human cost of current Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) raids in Tucson, Arizona.
