Humanities Council; Dean of Faculty; The Center for Human Values, Darren "Freedom" Green Zoom
March 11, 2021 · 4:30 pm—5:30 pm · Zoom
Open to undergraduates, graduate students, and faculty.
Organizing Stories presents “Community Organizing 101,” a workshop with Trenton activist Darren “Freedom” Green.
The third workshop in a year-long series features Darren “Freedom” Green, a longtime Trenton activist, public speaker, and former mayoral candidate. Green will lead a spirited workshop entitled “Community Organizing 101” about the ins-and-outs of local organizing and the integral role storytelling has played in his community outreach.
“Community Organizing 101” is sponsored in conjunction with the Program in Humanistic Studies class “Arts in the Invisible City: Race, Policy, Performance” taught by Vance Smith and Nathan Davis. It is open to all undergraduates, graduate students, and faculty interested in the intersections between scholarly and activist work.
Organizing Stories is a student-driven project supported by the Humanities Council Exploratory Grant in the Humanities and founded and directed by Autumn M. Womack (English; African American Studies) and Monica Huerta (English; American Studies). The project investigates the long histories of anti-racist activism, racial justice organizing, and coalition-building as they relate to questions of narrative, storytelling, and humanistic study more broadly.
