Diovanna Lábeija Fraizer ’16 and Assistant Dance Chair Catherine Cabeen Perform at New-York Historical Society
The program, presented on October 14 in partnership with the American LGBTQ+ Museum, celebrated the Historical Society’s groundbreaking exhibit Salem Witch Trials: Reckoning and Reclaiming. Scholars, organizers, and queer leaders of Pagan and Wiccan communities explored the power of queerness in reclaiming witchcraft as an identity today. Professor Cabeen also choreographed and performed a solo piece.
Salem Witch Trials: Reckoning and Reclaiming highlights intolerance and injustice in American history by examining tangible fragments from the lives of those involved in the witchcraft accusations of the 17th century—from the accused and their accusers to those who defended women brought up on legal charges.
The exhibition runs from October 7, 2022, to January 22, 2023, in the Joyce B. Cowin Women’s History Gallery at the New-York Historical Society Museum and Library. For tickets and more information about this exhibit, click here.
Congratulations Diovanna & Catherine!
