What is Stories in Living Color? Storytellers working together to learn about race, and unlearn racism and discrimination. Storytellers of different races, or from communities that face discrimination have teamed up and crafted individual, but “paired” stories; stories that intersect and illustrate aspects of race, racism, and discrimination. Our goal is to uncover our individual racist and discriminatory tendencies, unlearn those tendencies, and together help to change our society.

This event is a co-production of the Storytelling Association of California and Six Feet Apart Productions and features Stories in Black and White, told by paired black and white storytellers.

Want to be part of the “live” virtual audience? Buy a Backstage Pass and be in the “room” with the storytellers. Otherwise, the show will stream live on YouTube.
