Once again, the TMI Project is “changing the world one story at a time,” as their website proclaims, this time with #BlackStoriesMatter on Saturday, March 25th, 7:30pm at the Pointe of Praise Family Life Center in Kingston, NY.
According to our sister site, Chronogram.com, TMI will be partnering with Citizen Action of New York in the Hudson Valley to stage #BlackStoriesMatter with the ultimate goal of shining a light on the contemporary black experience. Eva Tenuto, executive director of TMI Project, explained that TMI’s latest production is their way “of participating as an organization in the national outcry of injustice that has been amplified as a result of senseless killings at the hands of law enforcement, frequent racial profiling, and the history of racism in this nation.” Brooklyn Tech’s Step Team, The Lady Dragons, and the social justice dance team from Center for Creative Education will also be performing at the event.
