A special treat on March 7 during the Opening Reception:

Panel Discussion: 2pm to 3pm.
Benjamin Melendez, founder of the legendary Ghetto Brothers, initiated the 1971 gang truce that led to the creation of hip hop in the South Bronx. In a conversation with author Julian Voloj, Melendez will discuss growing up in the South Bronx, the events that led to the gang truce, and how it feels to have his life turned into a graphic novel.
