Organizing Stories Workshop with Darren “Freedom” Green

 

Friday, February 264:30PMZoom

 

The third workshop in a year-long series features Darren “Freedom” Green, a longtime Trenton activist, public speaker, and former mayoral candidate. Green will lead a spirited workshop entitled “Community Organizing 101” about the ins-and-outs of local organizing and the integral role storytelling has played in his community outreach.

 

“Community Organizing 101” is sponsored in conjunction with the class “Arts in the Invisible City: Race, Policy, Performance” taught by Vance Smith (English) and Nathan Davis (Lewis Center for the Arts). It is open to all undergraduates, graduate students, and faculty interested in the intersections between scholarly and activist work.

 

Organizing Stories is a student-driven project supported by the Humanities Council Exploratory Grant in the Humanities and founded and directed by Autumn M. Womack (English; African American Studies) and Monica Huerta (English; American Studies). The project investigates the long histories of anti-racist activism, racial justice organizing, and coalition-building as they relate to questions of narrative, storytelling, and humanistic study more broadly.

 

This event is open to undergraduates, graduate students, and faculty.
