Naugatuck Valley Community College’s 2013-14 Fulbright Scholar-in-Residence, Oonya Kempadoo, presented her collaborative story approach to ecological sustainability as her “gift” to the College on Tuesday, April 22, 2014 in the Playbox Theater. The project includes an interactive website that offers a multitude of ways for readers to engage with Kempadoo’s story “Naniki”, which in the indigenous Taino language means “to be active” or “spirit”.
