On September 28, 2019, Mosaic will host a community conversation panel to coincide with our September Black Box production, It’s LIT: Celebrating Authors of Color. Led by some of Detroit’s own authors of color, Rochelle Riley, Jonathan J. Johnson, and Morgan Breon, audiences will engage in a powerful conversation that centers individuals as experts of their experience. The conversation is sought to empower individuals to give voice to their stories to help to change the way in which narratives are shaped and shared.
At a time when trends such as changing demographics and technological innovation are remaking the world at lightning speed, young people and other underrepresented groups’ ability to craft their own narratives and speak their truth will be key to helping society thrive. Mosaic’s is honored to bring together community members for a conversation on the beauty and impact of storytelling and the ways that the arts have created new opportunities to share a different perspective on the narratives of youth and people of color.
It’s Lit will run from September 27-29th, the community conversation will be held on September 28 from 6:00-7:00 pm. Tickets can be purchased at www.mosaicdetroit.org/tickets
