Community Storytelling for Policy Change

February 15 @ 10:00 AM - 11:00 AM

In times of turmoil, storytelling can be a catalyst for policy change as well as a symbol for healing and resistance. As we recognize the 30th anniversary of the Los Angeles Uprising, a defining moment in our history, join Lora King, Shinese Harlins-Kilgore, the Rev. Dr. Najuma Smith-Pollard, and Dr. Allissa V. Richardson for a vibrant discussion on the intergenerational impact of storytelling and its symbiotic relationship with public policy. Dr. Erroll Southers will moderate the discussion and take audience questions.

This event, “Community Storytelling for Policy Change – The Lasting Influence of Latasha Harlins, Rodney King, and the 1992 LA Uprising,” is presented by SCI, the USC Black Alumni Association, the USC Dornsife Center for the Political Future, and the USC Sol Price School of Public Policy.

Register today for this important event.
