Free and open to the public!
If enslaved peoples discover, enact, or perform freedom through narration, their stories issue a call to readers, that needs a response. Presenters and workshop facilitators will explore how the call and response between text (ancestor) and reader (descendant) creates possibilities for freeing the heirs of slavery from the loss and trauma of natal alienation, restoring the routes of memory.
