Join TMI Project for Truth to Power, a live storytelling performance featuring a cast of new storytellers who participated in a Black Stories Matter weekend intensive writing workshop. This intergenerational performance will feature inspiring stories about Black people surviving, and thriving, in the Hudson Valley.

 

In addition to these stories being presented to the general public at the live performance, storytellers will be prepared to share their stories at City Hall forums, community speak outs and rallies, using their experience to create true and lasting change.

 

This event will be live streamed on Facebook thanks to our partner Radio Kingston.

 

Special thanks to our Black Stories Matter partners: Rise Up Kingston, AJ Williams-Myers African Roots Center, Kingston High School, RUPCO, and Radio Kingston.

 

 

About Black Stories Matter

 

Black Stories Matter is TMI Project’s way of making an impact in addressing incidents of hate, bigotry and racial injustice in our local community while also participating as an organization in the national outcry of injustice. TMI Project’s mission with Black Stories Matter is to elevate the underrepresented stories of the Black experience in America – the full spectrum – the triumphs, humor, beauty and resilience.

 

Funders

 

Black Stories Matter is made possible by the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew M. Cuomo and the New York State Legislature.
