Courageous noticing and unapologetic truthtelling.

We all have a racial story to share.

"The lion's story will never be known as long as the hunter is the one to tell it."

-West African proverb


While we are aware of and challenge systemic social injustices that shape our communities, Lion's Story takes a more proximal approach to racial conflict resolution. Our work begins with practitioners, staff and leaders of organizations, teaching skills that address face-to-face and in-the-moment racial encounters. We work across all age groups leverage the power of storytelling and racial literacy skill development, with the goal of promoting emotional and relationship health.


"This institute was an emotional, mental and spritual shedding experience for me. I've gained new tools in processing and dealing with racial conflicts."


D. Scott


"It [felt] like a movement! It was empowered and helped me to find my voice and the courage to use it."
