In Your Home on Zoom
Join Inside Black Stories Matter Host Jessieca McNabb, Black Stories Matter Workshop Leaders Dara Lurie and Micah, special guests Bard College Scholar in Residence, Human Rights, Kwame Holmes and storyteller Beetle Bailey to explore the connection between the personal and the political, and to discuss the intersection of race, gender, and sexuality.
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.”

“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.
