“When do we whisper? When do we shout?”
We all tell stories. But how we tell those stories changes depending on who and where we are and on the conditions of our lives and institutions. People of color, women, LGBTQ and gender nonconforming people, and people with differing abilities have used various strategies–from whisper networks and kitchen conversations to protests and public demonstrations–to speak truth when society prefers they remain silent. Either way can make change, but as Maya Angelou wrote, “There is no greater agony than bearing an untold story inside you.”
Telling Untold Histories – New Jersey’s annual unconference that looks for human stories yet to be told – will explore these histories on April 26, 2019 in the Paul Robeson’s Campus Center at Rutgers-University Newark.
