The written word

Vermont Humanities: "The Value of Our Stories" with Poet Ranjnii Eddins: Rajnii Eddins utilizes spoken word as a tool for engagement in conversations about race, culture, equity and the richness to be found in each of our stories. He discusses how our stories can be used to confront racism and other injustices, affirm diversity and equity, and initiate community dialogue. He'll conclude with a conversation about how attendees can share their stories as a way to create healing and to grow mutual understanding. Eddins has been performing poetry and engaging diverse audiences for more than 20 years. He was the youngest member of the African American Writers Alliance at 11 years old, was chosen as the first youth poet to read original works to the Seattle City Council at 17, and represented Seattle in the National Poetry Slam. He's a published author of two books of poetry - "A Taste of RAGE" and "Their Names Are Mine.". 7 - 8 p.m. on the Digital Programs portion of our website, our Facebook page, and our YouTube channel. Eddins will answer questions in the Facebook comments as the video premieres on Facebook and share his poetry and the historical context in which it was created. Vermont Humanities Council.
