Synopses & Reviews

Book News Annotation:

Social justice activists, artists, and project leaders from around the world describe community-based and interest-based projects in which groups of people are using stories as a grassroots tactic for making social justice claims. Among them are HIV-positive mothers in Uganda, teachers and students in New Orleans, disabled performers in San Francisco, and Maya youth in Guatemala. There is no index.

Synopsis:

Telling Stories to Change the World is a powerful collection of essays about community-based and interest-based projects where storytelling is used as a strategy for speaking out for justice. Contributors from locations across the globe?including Uganda, Darfur, China, Afghanistan, South Africa, New Orleans, and Chicago?describe grassroots projects in which communities use narrative as a way of exploring what a more just society might look like and what civic engagement means. These compelling accounts of resistance, hope, and vision showcase the power of the storytelling form to generate critique and collective action. Together, these projects demonstrate the contemporary power of stories to stimulate engagement, active citizenship, the pride of identity, and the humility of human connectedness.

Synopsis:

This is a powerful collection of essays about community-based projects where storytelling is used as a strategy for speaking out for justice. Collectively these narratives demonstrate the contemporary power of stories to stimulate engagement.
