Around the world, storytelling remains a tried a true practice in many cultures to pass down history, teach important lessons, and share experiences of joy, sorrow, and enlightenment. For the first time ever, YWCA Madison’s Racial Justice Summit will gather participants and speakers to tell their true stories in the spirit of this year’s theme of Reclaiming Our Stories.
Join fellow summit attendees on October 2nd at 4:30 pm in Ballroom A of the Monona Terrace to celebrate this impactful oral tradition. Hosted by Anjali Misra, we’ll hear from presenters and attendees that will be selected to share their reclamation stories. Light refreshments will be served and a cash bar will be available for guests.
If you are interested in being considered to tell a story at the Story Slam, please fill out this interest form by Friday, September 21st.
Women Against Hate United by Love
The art featured at the 2018 Racial Justice Summit is part of a project called Women Against Hate United by Love, a collective project of artists and activists. The artists, Kelly Parks Snider, Rachel Griffin, and Leigh Garcia, worked collaboratively with activists to create a platform for a female-led anti-hate campaign united against bigotry, intolerance, and racism.
