LIVINGSTON, NJ — On Saturday, May 12, from 3 p.m. to 4:30 p.m., the Livingston Public Library and the South Asian American Digital Archive (SAADA) present "The Missing Stories of South Asian Americans." This event is open to all; no registration is required.

In 1883, Anandibai Joshee, a young woman from a small city in western India arrived in Roselle, NJ. She had traveled thousands of miles, overcoming incredible physical and emotional hardships. She arrived with a purpose and eventually became the first South Asian woman in the world with a degree in western medicine.

South Asians have been a presence in the US for more than 130 years, but their stories are mostly unknown. In this session, participants will engage in an interactive discussion about underepresented populations, specifically examining South Asians, and how sharing community stories can help create a more inclusive future.

As fans watching the World Cup know too well, bathroom breaks are a serious dilemma, especially for those who don’t have a TV in the loo.  This biological necessity is exasperated by beer, which during World Cup matches also fuels a strong propensity to throw chairs and instigate riots.
