In Haitian Kreyol, the word “lakou” has many meanings: it is the backyard, the land passed down through generations, the gathering place for shared meals, for dancing, singing, worship or passionate debate. “Lakou” can also mean home. Jean Appolon Expressions, a Boston-based contemporary Haitian dance company, will join us in the Children’s Library for a special story time and dance workshop that celebrates and explores the idea of “lakou.”
Co-presented with the Norman B. Leventhal Map Center and the Children’s Library at the Boston Public Library.
