Storying the Revolution

Melvin Bray is the principal facilitator, strategist, and organizer for Collabyrinth, an equity/diversity/inclusion design firm. he was born and raised in Washington, D.C. yet now resides with his family in Atlanta, Georgia.  for him, black liberation is collaboratively telling our own stories, toward our own generative ends. although Melvin has been what is generally considered woke most his life, he finally abandoned any hope in the value of assimilation after the Trayvon Martin murder when he realized his children could not outrun the misperceptions of others. he will be hosting a table conversation on Storying the Revolution, in which he asks, "what new stories and scripts do we most stand in need of?"
