next season!

Are you exhausted by the half-truths and false impressions that outsiders have of you and your city? Pulitzer Prize-nominated journalist, famed writer, and Detroit community activist Desiree Cooper facilitates a master class about the danger of a single story. Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie noted in her TED Talk “Danger of a Single Story” that: “Stories matter. Many stories matter. Stories have been used to dispossess and to malign, but stories can also be used to empower and to humanize.” Students will write counter-narratives that aim to create a real picture of what it’s like to be them, using their energy to create works of fiction or creative non-fiction.
