The Voice of a 21st Century American: From the Individual to the World at Large
Start Date: 2/15/2018Start Time: 3:00 PM
End Date: 2/15/2018End Time: 5:00 PM

Event Description
A Workshop With Spoken Word Poet Amal Kassir
This workshop is built around the concepts of evolution, engagement and empowerment in the American experience. It utilizes the individual experience to define social injustice and utilize this definition to recognize various issues and how to mitigate them through tangible means. This is done through engaging our personal identities, spirituality, morality, and passions to be active in the social justice sphere using our own storytelling. Through this, we will bridge the gaps between our worlds and the world at large, making change through storytelling a tangible thing.
