FAMILY REUNION: Stories on race by strangers who became family

August 9 @ 6:00 pm

FAMILY REUNION: Stories on race by strangers who became family

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.

This month is different from our regular slam! There’s a theme for the night, with 5 minute stories, but this month storytellers were selected in advance, and we won’t be voting on the best story.

Ten storytellers participated in a 7-week workshop in which they dug for and developed personal narrative stories based on the theme of race, through the lens of anti-racism work. On August 9 they’ll be sharing these stories.

The workshop was co-led by Johanna Walker, speaker, trainer and host of Boulder’s Story Slam, and Darryl Piggott, LA based educator. We’re a mixed race group with people from all over the US — Boulder, Longmont, Denver, LA, NYC, North Carolina, Massachusetts — spanning 6 decades and including people in their 20’s, 30’s, 40’s, 50’s and 70’s.

Storytellers include:

Kelita Samone
Sasha Hawkins
Cynthia Andre
Michelle Lomeli
Emilie Kay
Carolyne Larson
Patricia Kalma
Maggie O’Brien
Sarah Plazas
Alexis Miles

Suggested donation . A portion of the proceeds will go to a Black Lives Matter initiative. (organization yet to be named. We’ll keep you posted.) We hope you can join us!
