More Than a Single Story: Dealing With it – People of Color Talk About Mental Health

Mental Health in Communities of Color

More Than a Single Story is a series of programs that takes place at different venues across the Twin Cities. Founded and curated by writer Carolyn Holbrook, the program strives to break down the stereotyping of people of color by celebrating their diverse voices and experiences.

In this More Than a Single Story discussion, writers, artists and mental health professionals of color will share their experiences with mental health challenges and deconstruct the stories that are told around those issues.

Rose McGee will facilitate discussions using her Circle Within a Circle model: first, speakers will share their experiences; next, participants will have the opportunity to replace speakers to respond and continue the conversation; and lastly, all participants will have a chance to engage and deepen their understanding of mental health in Black, Indigenous and communities of color in Minnesota.

Speaking: Suleiman Adan, Sherrie Fernandez-Williams, Hye-Kyong Kim, Diana Nguyen, Lola Osunkoya and Susan Mona Power. Opening poet: Diana Nguyen. Moderator: Rose McGee. Collaborator: More Than a Single Story. Funded by Minnesota’s Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund.
