Come get inspired by the words of La’Ron Williams, Storyteller
During this month, join peace activist and professional storyteller La’Ron Williams as he uses his storytelling skill to weave an account that is at once a sober history lesson, an amusing love story, a call to action, and an inspirational reminder of our collective capacity to overcome great adversity.
La’Ron Williams conducts workshops – with schools, business organizations, and non-profits – on the fundamentals of creating inclusive communities across a number of lines of diversity. His workshops are always informative, entertaining, and filled with opportunities for personal growth and organizational development. LaRon is also a nationally acclaimed, award-winning storyteller who, for more than thirty years, has toured extensively presenting highly participatory, music-spiced programs composed of a dynamic blend of original and traditional tales. He is known for his pronounced commitment to justice and peacemaking – a commitment made concrete through his involvement with the Racial and Economic Justice Caucus of the Ann Arbor (Michigan) based Interfaith Council for Peace and Justice, and via his work with Washtenaw Faces Race, an all-volunteer, inter-racial, interdisciplinary group that consciously and consistently works to dismantle racial hierarchy and promote racial equity in local institutions within Washtenaw County.
