This event features a pair nationally acclaimed storytellers. Though they come from extremely different backgrounds, there is a common thread between the stories they tell. Both have stories that reflect uncomfortable times in American history, and both are on a subject matter that is not frequented by school textbooks or media coverage. Even though the war may be over and the wild west tamed, the damage to those oppressed during these times is something that cannot be undone, and should not be understated. The tendency is to improve upon the past by ignoring it and moving on, but doing so creates a divide that is not easily fixed. These stories are about reconciling the past, in the hope that it may lead to a better future for us all.
