Organizing Stories

Darren Green is a longtime Trenton activist, public speaker, and former mayoral candidate. As a part of the Organizing Stories workshop series, Green will lead a spirited workshop about the ins-and-outs of local organizing, exploring the integral role storytelling has played in his community outreach.

This workshop is sponsored in conjunction with the class Arts in the Invisible City: Race, Policy, Performance (UM 352/ENG 252/URB 352/THR 350) taught by Vance Smith and Nathan Davis.

It is open to all undergraduates, graduate students, and faculty interested in the intersections between scholarly and activist work.

Organizing Stories is a student-focused project founded and directed by Professors Autumn M. Womack (English; African American Studies) and Monica Huerta (English; American Studies). The project connects students with veteran organizers to investigate the long histories of anti-racist activism, racial justice organizing, and coalition-building as they relate to questions of storytelling and humanistic study more broadly.

Organizing Stories is supported by an Exploratory Grant in Collaborative Humanities from the Humanities Council, as well as the Dean of the Faculty, the University Center for Human Values, the Department of African American Studies, and the Princeton African Humanities Colloquium.
