Liberation and Healing through Story-Telling

Tyson Amir, Black Literary Collective Director

In order to reclaim our personal and collective sense of empowerment, we can deal with trauma through creative expression and story-telling. Telling our stories is crucial in the healing process and for mastering our narrative. This workshop will discuss the history of story-telling in the black community and other marginalized communities and discuss the use of story-telling as an empowerment tool and healing tool. As this history has been cut-off, it is more important than ever to tell our stories so we prevent passing on our traumas to our children.

Tyson Amir is an author, musician, educator, community organizer, and freedom fighter born and raised in the San Francisco Bay Area. Tyson’s work is in the spirit of “the dragon,” George Lester Jackson, who endeavored to utilize any and all resources at his disposal as weapons to bring about the eventual liberation of his people. Tyson is the author of the book Black Boy Poems, the Black Boy Poems Curriculum and the founder/director of the Black Literary Collective. He is based out of Oakland.
