Event Details

Virtual Event via Zoom Webinar – $5-$25 suggested donation. Join us for a night of true stories centered around the theme of RACE, told from the heart, and from living rooms across the country. 
 

Eliminating racism is a monumental task. We believe it starts with stories.

When we can look at our own stories with honesty and courage, and listen to one another’s stories with curiosity and heart, we have a much better shot at taking meaningful action towards creating a just and equitable world.

That’s what we’ve been doing in this 8-week storytelling workshop — digging for and sharing true, personal narrative stories about how race has played a part in our lives.  On April 24, we’ll share those stories with you.

Co-led by Johanna Walker, speaker, training, and host of Boulder’s Story Slam, and Darryl Piggott, LA-based educator, with a mixed-race group of storytellers from across the US.

Storytellers include: 

Carrie Sawyer
Kory May
Gage Evans
Mary Friedrichs
Tim Hillmer
Lola Adeyemo
Shani Raviv
Shene Randall

The suggested donation is $5-25. We’ll be donating a portion of the proceeds to an organization focused on anti-racism work. (organization yet to be named. We’ll keep you posted.) We hope you can join us! 

Time

(Saturday) 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm
