Story and Race

Seminars, rallies, academic papers, scholarly books, earnest roundtable discussions—none of them has taken us to deep and satisfying understanding of our racial differences. Can storytelling? Our guests, including the co-author of Story Bridge, help us see how that old art form can dissolve the fear and defensive blocks that get in our way.

    The power of telling stories shows a real hopeful way we can turn to in order to change ourselves by really understanding our cultural prejudices that helped to form and misform us. THANKS to Jeff, Christiana Clark, Cassondra Smith and Richard Geer!

    I discovered this show on accident flipping channels and I was enamored with how rich and deep program is. I thoroughly enjoyed this episode and learned a great deal. As a college administrator, I sincerely value hearing the stories of others.

    I also discovered the program as I surfaced the television. I missed the beginning of the show, but I lingered on to decide whether I wanted to continue looking or surfing.
    I belong to a group of people who are also working on elimination racism (as well as other hurtful social issues) so I chose to stay. I’m happy I stayed. I was not physically involved so I guess it was easier to LISTEN and not participate.
    I struggle with “the uncomfortable conversation” even though it is encouraged in my group.

    The program gave me the encouragement to tackle hurtful feelings if I really want to live my life meaningfully.

    Thank you.
