Telling Stories to Change the World is a powerful collection of essays about community-based and interest-based projects where storytelling is used as a strategy for speaking out for justice. Contributors from locations across the globe-including Uganda, Darfur, China, Afghanistan, South Africa, New Orleans, and Chicago-describe grassroots projects in which communities use narrative as a way of exploring what a more just society might look like and what civic engagement means. These compelling accounts of resistance, hope, and vision showcase the power of the storytelling form to generate critique and collective action. Together, these projects demonstrate the contemporary power of stories to stimulate engagement, active citizenship, the pride of identity, and the humility of human connectedness.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"It is difficult to underscore the importance of books like Telling Stories to Change the World. Indigenous Peoples are now revealing prophesies about an immanent end to dominant systems that are based on greed, corruption, materialism and an artificial separation from Nature, the very things that cause social and ecological injustice....Books like this one remind us that we are all related and that an arts-based dialogue that allows oppressed people to tell their stories can help with this awakening." -- Teachers College, Record, October 16, 2008
