Telling Our Stories of Home

March 31, 2016 - April 8, 2016

telling our storiesSOHP is excited to co-sponsor Telling our Stories of Home: Exploring and Celebrating Changing African Diaspora Communities, hosted by the Stone Center in collaboration with UNC faculty, staff, and community partners. The two week event held on March 31-April 2 (Weds – Saturday) and April 6 -8 (Weds-Friday), will highlight and celebrate the talents of women from Africa and the African Diaspora focusing on the theme of home – what is home; where is home; returning home; uprooted from home. Artists from the U.S., Brazil, India, Uganda, Rwanda, and the U.K. will explore the many methods of sharing stories including such genres as drama, spoken word, poetry, film/video, dance, music, and visual art. The event will include scholarly panels, performances, and workshops culminating with a community celebration of these women and their works.
