Social justice podcast ‘Our Stories Our Truth’ provides platform for stories of oppression

September 12, 2019

Carthage area coordinator Emily Norman has created a social justice podcast as part of a larger project she’s involved in called the Midwest Social Justice Symposium with Tiye Sherrod, and Agnes Woodward. The podcast, Our Stories Our Truth, just launched this fall, and aims to provide a platform for those with stories that would otherwise go unheard. 

“The podcast came about from us wanting stories of oppression — and the work that goes along with dismantling it — heard,” says Emily. “Oftentimes media focuses on the majority narratives and not the narratives of people from marginalized identities or experiences.”

The podcast posts a new episode every other week, and anyone can submit a story to be told.
