Shoebox Stories is a story-holding project where you stand in another person’s shoes by reading aloud their story, saying their words, and holding, for a moment, the weight that they carry.
Last week, Motus Theater celebrated and recognized Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s fight for equality and civil rights this year by asking local leaders in Boulder County to stand in other people’s shoes. Shoebox Stories paired Motus’ undocumented monologists with prominent Boulderites to amplify their stories and host a community conversation around immigration, the DACA + DREAMer programs and how, by standing in another’s shoes, we expand our understanding of what it means to be human.
Readers selected for the evening by the Center of the American West included:
- Kyle Furlong, Chi Psi, Chapter President
- James Mcconnell – Sigma Nu, Former Chapter President and current Men’s Health and Wellness Director
- Adam Wenzlaff – Sigma Nu, Chapter President
- Patty Limerick – Director of Center of the American West
The talkback that followed the presentation was moderated by Patty Limerick, Faculty Director and Chair of the Board of the Center of the American West.
