Storytelling for Racial Justice
Because not all stories are equally acknowledged, affirmed or valued, and together we can change that.
Storytelling has the potential to challenge the dominant narrative and uncover knowledge that has been buried by the dominant culture. Our intention is to create a space in which differential aspects of our stories and the connections between our individual stories and group experiences with racism and privilege can be openly explored. In addition, we aim to provide an entry point for critical examination of how racism operates on both individual and systematic levels in our teaching/learning and work environments. We feel this is an important aspect to further the transformational change that we want to see.
All stories are anonymous. Stories will be aggregated to provide an overall story of our landscape of how race and racism operates in our teaching/learning and work environments. RBI will use aspects of the stories during presentations, trainings, communications and engagement efforts.
This project was adapted from Bell, L. A. (2009). The story of the storytelling project: An arts-based race and social justice curriculum. Storytelling, Self, Society, 5(2), 107-118.
4 STORY TYPES
This project will focus on four story types about race and racism in our teaching/learning and work environments. These are: stock stories, concealed stories, resistance stories, and counter or transforming stories.
Feel free to contribute to any of the story types.
