We’ve got the mic. You bring the stories.

Audience members are invited to put their names in our hat. If your name is drawn, you’ll come to the stage and tell your true, five-minute story in any way related to the theme.

What happened when you LANDED the job of your dreams?
Did you and your neighbor fight over where to put the backyard fence?
Did you impress that guy by LANDING the punchline of a bad joke?
Did you break your ankle when you LANDED that back handspring?

If you don’t want the mic this time, just come listen to a great night of storytelling.

Hosted by Johanna Walker with guest co-host, Darryl Purpose, this event is sure to sell out so get your tickets early.
See you IN PERSON on September 12th!


Eliminating racism is a monumental task.
We believe it starts with stories. 

Join us on Saturday April 24 ON ZOOM for the final event of the RACE STORIES project where you’ll hear wondrous, quirky, open-hearted, righteous, poignant, transformational STORIES told by a group of storytellers who have participated in a storytelling workshop centered in anti-racism work.

We The People:
True Stories About Race”

A night of true, personal narrative stories
centered around the theme of RACE 
told from the heart
and from living rooms across the country. 

When we can look at our own stories with honesty and courage, and listen to one another’s stories with curiosity and heart, we have a much better shot at taking meaningful action towards creating a just and equitable world. That’s what we’ve been doing in this 8-week storytelling workshop — digging for and sharing true, personal narrative stories about how race has played a part in our lives.

Co-led by Johanna Walker, speaker, training and host of Boulder’s Story Slam, and Darryl Piggott, LA based educator, with a mixed race group of storytellers from across the US. 

Meet the Storytellers:

Kory May

Carrie Sawyer

Gage Evans

Lola Adeyemo

Mary Friedrichs

Shani Raviv

Shene Randall

Tim Hillmer


Save the Date: Saturday April 24, 6:30pm MT/8:30 EDT

Where: On Zoom!

Suggested donation is $5-25. We’ll be donating a portion of the proceeds to The Chinook Fund, a funding organization that supports small, grassroots, BIPOC-led groups committed to social & economic justice.
