Your stories matter, representation matters, we will explore that and see how storytelling affects culture and society.
2020 was one heck of a year. As we stayed home we learned and worked, we watched and read, or wrote stories that took us away from the strangities of a new reality. Storytelling thrived. New books and films were released at home with the same anticipation as theaters and stores. Through tragedy, our lived reality, some woke to society’s pulp that has risen to the top in a world where life can be deadlier than fiction. Black lives mattered to those who cherish them as a companion and a commodity. Signs we made, mask made statements, murals painted, and corporations … made playlists. Black stories became a thing to watch. We endured and still we rise. Our stories of anger and love, of protest and peace, of wonder and wisdom, we rose. And though we lost many who had made our stories full of life and promise such as Oscar winning basketball player Kobe Bryant, award winning graphic novel from civil right politician John Lewis, and the King of Wakanda Chadwick Boseman. We told our stories from past, present, and possible future and we will continue to rise through actions and story.
