Year of Learning: Norma Johnson Presentation

Monday, November 16, 2020 29 Cheshvan 5781

6:30 PM - 8:00 PMVirtual event on Zoom: access provided upon registration

                       

Storytelling is as old as humankind. It’s a powerful tool in how we see and experience ourselves, each other, our community and our world. And here in the U.S., Race is not a single story. It’s not just about people of color. In fact, it’s primarily about the story of whiteness. In a racialized society, everyone is judged by the color of their skin. We all have skin in this story. 

Join us in this intriguing workshop as we bring to light our personal stories, to bear witness to our inner narratives and perceptions about race. Be ready to listen, to write, and to share, as we explore how our own story can inspire us to take steps toward racial justice and what matters most to us, in this challenging and changing narrative of race.

NORMA JOHNSON is a spiritual healer, writer-poet-playwright, performance artist, speaker and facilitator that brings a creative background into her distinctive presentation form of racial justice activism. Her powerful and poignant collection of “Poems for My White Friends” stirs hearts and minds. Her work opens space for inquiry, reflection and dialogue about the inevitable role race plays in our society and in our personal lives, every day. Norma’s poetry about race is used enthusiastically by educators across the country. Her storytelling inspires awareness and insight and the power we have to bring paths of healing to our future.
