After the killing of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin and rise of the national #BlackLivesMatter movement, TMI Project spent five years planning to take action the way they know best: by telling stories. TMI Project hosted the first #BlackStoriesMatter performance last year in Kingston. People took the stage to tell their truth about being black, discussing issues of racism, gentrification, media representation, and so on. This year, TMI Project is partnering with Bard College's student-service organization, BRAVE, to present an encore live storytelling experience on April 4 at 7pm at Bard College. Storytellers will perform a version of the original performance, followed by a panel discussion by local activists: Brothers of Bard founder Dariel Vasquez, former Citizen Action lead organizer Callie Jayne, and TMI Project directors Tameka Ramsey and Eva Tenuto.
