lange tafel

 Students and community members sit together at long table on CSUF campus lawn

The first Lange Tafel began in Berlin over a decade ago. This community story telling event came to Los Angeles in 2016 and 2017. Both Berlin and Los Angeles are multicultural cities that are deeply shaped by immigration. Both cities engage in intensive social, educational, and cultural activities aimed at fostering integration. This celebration of community story telling came to Orange County at California State University Fullerton for the first time in April, 2019. Orange County, a modern-day suburban region of Southern California, is in its own way a blend of various cultures and immigration stories. At the Long Table, we honor these stories.
