Telling Stories to Change the World
Friday, November 7, 8:00-9:30pm at Charis. Free.
Charis Books, Charis Circle & Deeper Waters invite you to an evening of prophets and poets to introduce the new book, Telling Stories to Change the World: Global Voices on the Power of Narrative to Build Community and Make Social Justice Claims, (edited by Rickie Solinger & Madeline Fox.) The voices of national & local poets, will be featured as well as writers from the book, telling the 'true story' about the controlling of our bodies for war, profit, and oppression. This event will transform the notion that the bodies of people of color, people with disabilities, and queer people, among other communities, are "wrong" and "expendable."
Some featured Artists/Writers will include: Leroy Moore, a Berkeley, CA based artist, broadcaster and activist and founder/producer of the Krip Hop Project; Mia Mingus, a queer, disabled woman of color who is a South Korean transracial adoptee and reproductive justice organizer; Yolo Akili, a spirit expressing human through the lens of a poet, activist and astrologer who is also a student of Iyengar Yoga at Yoga of India and the author of the critically acclaimed chapbook "Poems in the Key of Green"; & Cara Page, a Black queer organizer, healing arts practitioner, artist & founder/producer of Deeper Waters; and some special guest appearances.
We will also be inviting the audience to participate in a "telling truth" exercise on expendable bodies, inspired by a Deeper Waters project called, Third Story/Third Voice. So come! You won't want to miss this! PLEASE SPREAD THE WORD.
Charis Books is located in Little Five Points, behind the Brew House Restaurant, and is in a big purple house! Address is 1189 Euclid Ave NE, Atlanta GA 30307.
