Wed, 2/7 • Speaking Truth to Power in a Culture of Fear • 6-9PM • Cataldo
Audre Lorde tells us that speaking truth to power means believing deeply in what you say & fighting every day to have that heard. Knowing that speaking truth often means putting one’s livelihood at risk, Dr. Jon Paul Higgins helps us understand how to navigate difficult conversations in difficult spaces. We consider what power & privilege look like in said conversations while examining why silence will not provide us protection and how speaking truth to power provides freedom.
