Who Gets to Tell the Story? with Joseph Marshall III

Download this video
  1. Have I ever been in a situation where I felt someone else was controlling the “story” that was being told about me?  If so, how did that feel?  How did I deal with the situation?
  2. Are there things I was taught in school that I found out later were a bit different in reality?  If so, what were they?  How did I react when I discovered the fuller picture?
  3. Do I have any personal “oral” history that has been passed down to me generationally? What part of that oral history might I be willing to share?
  4. Have I ever been to visit a physical place that confirmed something I had only heard about through stories?
  5. How might these kinds of oral histories impact my sense of identity?  How might they impact my family’s sense of collective identity?
