Walk to Remember Srebrenica Genocide Events this July

The Kentucky Folklife Program is proud to partner with community organizers in this year’s Walk to Remember Srebrenica Genocide Symposium, which will be held at the Kentucky Museum on July 11, 2017 from 6pm-7pm (Facebook event).  We’d like to thank and acknowledge the key event organizers for inviting us to partner: Denis Hodzic, Senida Husic, Dzenana Kadric, Muamer Razic, and Amer Salihovic.

The theme of this year’s symposium is “A Culture Carried: Bosnians in Bowling Green.” The title is inspired by an exhibit opening on September 29, 2017 at the Kentucky Museum of the same name (Facebook Event and webpage).  The exhibit, featuring Bosnian culture in Bowling Green, is curated by the Kentucky Folklife Program with support from the National Endowment for the Arts.

From the archives: Senida Husic and her family cooking up a pot of kupus in their Bowling Green, KY home. Husic described: “The part of [Bosnia] where my family is from, the stew is called ‘kupus’ which is essentially just ‘cabbage’. There are different variations of how it’s made, family to family, but mostly it’s referred to as kupus.”
