Reflections On Community Trauma 5 Years After #Ferguson
(St. Louis Public Radio | August 2019)
To recognize that five years had passed since the killing of Michael Brown Jr. in Ferguson, Missouri, poet and storyteller Cheeraz Gormon and I produced a show featuring four storytellers whose lives changed after August 2014. Portions of the show broadcast on St. Louis On The Air.

Since the fall of 2017, I’ve hosted and produced live shows for The Story Collider, a science storytelling podcast. My co-host and I book storytellers, particularly people of color and from different educational backgrounds. We also spend at least a month before each show working closely with storytellers on multiple drafts to prepare them for their performances.
I also told a story about an interview I did with a neuroscientist who studies romantic love and the demise of a serious relationship that followed. Listen to that story here.
I told a different version of that story for the Campfire storytelling show and podcast, produced by Steven Harowitz. At that story performance, I invited audience members to destroy a book that an ex-boyfriend gave me, which they gladly did.
