Join us for a fun evening on Tuesday, 31 March 2015
as we present the documentary film, Liemba!

 

Before there was the African Queen, before there was the
East River Ferry and the NYC Ferry plan, there was Liemba!

A ferry connecting communities and people with
work on the great Lake Tanganyika.

Come see this warming and entertaining documentary
about the 100-year-old vessel; its history, interviews
with the people who run and use it; and hear
the marvelous sound track of East Africa music.

A panel discussion will follow the screening of the documentary.
Refreshments and beverages served after the event.

31 March 2015
6 p.m. to 9 p.m.
Check-in begins at 5:30 p.m.
