What does it mean to ‘change the narrative’? Who owns this narrative and how was it constructed? What are we changing this narrative and how do we succeed in our efforts?

This workshop invites these questions and more to push the boundaries in our thinking, giving way to breadth and depth in search for truth. A key component to the work of Bro. Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. was being able to tell his story and the stories of resilient people in the face of adversity. The undeniable truth in these stories had the power to change hearts, lead minds to pondering, lead writers to write, legislators to draft new laws, and produced a call to action that changed the American narrative in his time, course correcting years of disenfranchisement for black (and other) Americans, inspiring the world.  Through the lens of four stories—the Mattaponi tribe, Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., Toni Morrison, and my own—this workshop seeks to draw from that power and empower Exonians, faculty, and staff to lead lives of truth telling.
