About the Panel

“No change for the good ever happens without it being imagined first, even if that change seems hopeless or impossible in the present.”- Martin Espada.

The series has examined the power of storytelling in social movements and the interaction between storytelling and relationships of power. Join us in conversation with Gaye Theresa Johnson and Max Haiven as we discuss the power of imagination to articulate, envision, and create transformative futures.
