Inside Black Stories Matter
with Special Guests Terry James & Freedom Walker
Thursday, August 6th, 7-8:30pm EST
In Your Home on Zoom
Inside Black Stories Matter Host Jessieca McNabb, Black Stories Matter Workshop Leaders Dara Lurie and Micah, special guests Terry James from The Slave Dwelling Project and storyteller Freedom Walker explore the connection between the personal and the political, and unpack how the past connects us to the present.
All are welcome to join us to listen and learn, and leave with concrete anti-racism actions to positively impact the future.
“The Black Stories Matter Drop-in Workshop was like a pressure-valve-release of pent-up rage. I’ve been refocused, renewed, calmer, and less stressed ever since. I had been writing over, under, and around increasing outrage over anti-Black racism.”
– Black Stories Matter Workshop Participant Beetle Bailey

“Absolutely life-changing. It revealed racism didn’t know I had and I’m grateful for that. The only way across is through!”

About Black Stories Matter
Black Stories Matter is TMI Project’s way to participate as an organization in the national outcry of injustice by using true storytelling to speak truth to power and to dismantle the white supremacist systems that hold racism in place. We support and amplify Black voices, share resources, and inspire anti-racist action. We acknowledge the historical predominance of white-centered narratives that permeate the cultural, political, and policy conversations in this country, and seek to elevate the full spectrum of Black experience to its proper place within the realm of American discourse.

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.
