Black homsteading? Active listening? Join us to learn more!

In this event highlighting our Public Training Workshop Series, participants will discover how to create authentic and vulnerable connections between listening and storytelling. Through group partnered exercises, we will deconstruct how we listen, formulate our stories, and explore how both can be utilized as empowering tools. This event will also include a performance by researcher Erika Lively based on her pilgrimage to the site where her great-grandmother was a Black homesteader in the southeastern plains of Colorado during the late nineteenth century.

Refreshments will be provided during this free event.
