“My sense is that the American character lives not in one place or the other, but in the gaps between the places, and in our struggle to be together in our differences. It lives not in what has been fully articulated, but in what is in the process of being articulated, not in the smooth-sounding words, but in the very moment that the smooth-sounding words fail us. It is alive right now. We might not like what we see, but in order to change it, we have to see it.”


— Anna Deavere Smith, Fires in the Mirror

 

In this hands-on creative workshop we will examine how the contemporary realities of and intersections between race, class, gender, and sexuality frame the way we understand our world. We will use the lens of storytelling - an important component of Critical Race Theory - as a means to understand our relationships to people, neighborhoods, and communities.

Critical Race Theory emerged in legal studies after the Civil Rights movement to address the complex interplay of race/racism and U.S. law. Critical Race Theory has increasingly influenced the field of education, gender studies, ethnic studies, contemporary art, humanities, and social sciences. By analyzing contemporary artwork, relevant readings, and films we will connect personal narratives with Critical Race Theory in order to generate new ways of thinking about our roles as students and global citizens and investigate the question: How does race, class, gender, and sexuality affect the ways we move through the world?
