If you missed I Am New York: Juan Rodriguez at El Museo del Barrio last May, here's your chance to experience, on film, a theatrical rendering of Rodriguez' journey from his Afro-Taino origins in Spanish colonial Santo Domingo to the Lenape island of Mannahatta aboard a Dutch ship in 1613.
"A child of chance born of cultural collision,
one hundred years after Columbus."
