S. Rasheem Presents The Counter-Narrative (The Show)
Support The Counter-Narrative
The purpose of the show is to provide a critical examination of society and culture through the intersectional lens of race, gender, and class, more specifically it seeks to provide a counter-narrative. This space encourages a reflective assessment and critique of unique standpoints and its potential contribution to popular discourse.
Although there are a plethora of voices and experiences that make up the fabric of life; most frequently the stories and narratives that are shared, distributed and held up as representative are anything but that. In this, we run the risk of what Chimamanda Ngozi Adachie refers to as “the danger of a single story“.
Holding up a single story, or a single voice as representative of all without taking into account the context of social positioning and identity in the radicalized context that is America is at its very least to tell an incomplete story and at its very worst it leads to the symbolic annihilation of many populations of people who are erased or mischaracterized by the sharing of a single narrative from a standpoint that lacks contextual, cultural or even the historical lens necessary for true understanding.
The primary goals of the show are to:
Decentralize normative culture in the critique of marginalized populations
Remove the ethnocentric gaze through which we examine life and tell a story
Amplify the voices of our guest and provide a COUNTER-NARRATIVE based in lived experiences
