Seeds of Truth: Stories Inspired by Stamped: Racism, Antiracism, and You

Inspired by the best-selling Stamped: Racism, Antiracism, and You by Ibram X. Kendi and Jason Reynolds, four undergraduate students have created new media-based works, with collaborative mentorship from three Department of Theatre, Film, and Media Arts graduate students. In the wake of the Black Lives Matter movement and our country's ongoing reckoning with racial injustice, these young artists address personal narrative, the power of myth and the need for sustained engagement.

Join us for a screening of the media works, followed by a conversation with the creators.
