The Immigrant’s Trunk


The Immigrant’s Trunk begins with a performance depicting the journey of a Jewish immigrant, then challenges students to explore their own cultural heritage to bring old family stories alive.


"Katherine and her undeniable talent allowed students and staff of Independence High School to learn, feel, and experience the struggles, hardships, and joys of an immigrant to Baltimore. Students were able to relate to a topic they could not identify with firsthand. For more than an hour they forgot about a world that included iPods, music, and racism. Katherine's performance brought a spirit of knowledge and understanding, a performance that was multicultural, a performance that students continue to talk about and learn from."
