Storytelling is an essential tool for engaging audiences and reframing the conversation from individual bias to one focused on structural racism and racial justice. In this workshop, Race Forward staff and Colorlines writers will present articles, pulled from our own Colorlines reporting, that demonstrate reframing work in action. With a reframing guide created by Race Forward, we will examine stories that “get it wrong” and practice reframing them to avoid harmful racial discourse practices.
