Presented by the hummingbird theatre co. in association with the Pandemic Play Reading Series

An evening of videos and discussion

Part One:

Does That Change Your Assumptions About Me? by Vanessa Vancour – 13 minutes

“We are really good at forming judgements of other people and jump to conclusions based on how they look, sound, by their last names and by the color of their skin. Mexican American Educator, Vanessa Vancour, willhelp us develop a simple tactic to challenge the assumptions that limit our lives.”

Part Two:

The Danger of a Single Story by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie – 19 minutes

“Our lives, our cultures, are composed of many overlapping stories. Nigerian storyteller and novelist, Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, tells the story of how she found her authentic cultural voice — and warns that if we hear only a single story about another person or country, we risk a critical misunderstanding.”

There will be a discussion following each video.

Hope you’ll be able to join us for this inspiring program.
