Presented by author and activist Beverly Gooden

“The Power of Storytelling”

The office of Equity Diversity and Inclusion invites you to the final EDI Speakers Series Event for the Fall Semester. On November 11, 2020 at 6 p.m. author and activist Beverly Gooden will present an interactive Zoom session entitled “The Power of Storytelling”. In this interactive speech, Beverly Gooden presents storytelling as a transformative art form.

From Aesop's Fables to the emotive descriptions of Japanese internment camps, the retelling of a sequence of events has been an important part of history. Gooden walks through the history, purpose, and various forms of storytelling, and shares a spontaneous story from her life. Audience members will also have the opportunity to share their favorite story in 60 seconds or less.
