First Untold Story performance to be held Sept. 20 in Renton 

The first of three performances for US – The Untold Story will be held Thursday, September 20 at the Department of Elections in Renton. It will be from 1:30-3:30 p.m. in the Alvine Room.

Each of the performances will feature stories submitted by King County employees of color who responded to the question, “What’s your untold story of racism?” These stories are available to read on the Untold Story Project blog.

Local poets and actors will perform the readings under the direction of Seattle actor and storyteller Jekeva Phillips. The discussion to follow will be facilitated by conceptual artist and community-builder Natasha Marin.
