Community Read: Storytelling Event

Posted by Andy Cunningham on April 8, 2023 at 10:45 AM

As part of our yearlong Community Read of Trevor Noah's Born a Crime, this event showcased the stories of students and community members through on-stage readings. Much like The Moth's storytelling events, this event encouraged heartfelt, compelling, humorous, and honest tellings of the complex and rich lives led by our peers, students, neighbors, and colleagues. Inspired by the historically and culturally rich vignettes presented in Noah's memoir, we hope this event opened us up to thoughtful consideration of who we are as a community, where we come from, and how we all ended up together.

Students and community members were invited to submit transformative and impactful moments in their life that shaped who they are rooted in the following prominent themes displayed in Born a Crime: Community, personal growth, education, humor, belonging, identity, race, discrimination, and poverty.
