From Brooklyn To Brookside

A session at Interesting North

Saturday 13th November, 2010

4:00pm to 4:20pm (GMT)

Herb Kim was born in Brooklyn, NY. His parents were Korean and he lived on the divide separating a shrinking community of retired Jewish folk and a growing Hispanic community. This, as it turned out, would be the first of many cultural challenges that would present itself in Herb's life.

In 1997 Herb moved from New York to Oxford and began to experience the expression - "two countries separated by a common language." In his most recent cultural dislocation, Herb relocated with his young family to the country of Liverpool. In this talk Herb talk about some of his personal observations, challenges & experiences in his journey from Brooklyn to Brookside.
