Program Description: My VOYCE Creative Expression is an opportunity to create history with perspective in order to provide a full picture in many voices. 

Abstract: It's all about context. Fighting for justice, no matter the category (racial, economic, social, etc.) is about telling the full story. Or, in other words, it is about telling the truth. The journey to truth is a long and daunting one. But what one learns along the way, and what one is able to then teach, proves to be an invaluable lesson.

Truth telling lies in history with perspective, considering accounts that may not seem academic or research-based. It considers poetry, painting, movies, plays, songs, etc., works of an era that provide a picture in living color, speaking to the soul as well as the mind.

It is with similar performances, and in this workshop, that the ‘My VOYCE’ students of Manual High School will teach their participants to tell the full story, the ones with joy, pain, faith, despair, and perspective. These students will have just undergone a semester of building the framework to speak for themselves and their community through creative expression. Therefore, the three-hour session will begin with their stories, and end with the stories of the participants outlined through example, guidance, and empowerment.

Challenging Questions
1. What is history from your perspective?
2. If you were to tell your story, who would be your audience?
3. If you had the platform, would you speak; and if so, how?
