SPEAK YOUR TRUTH

“The fundamental role of the public intellectual is to create and sustain
high-quality public discourse addressing urgent public problems which enlightens and energizes fellow citizens, prompting them to take public action” Cornel West

The Speak Your Truth Project is a platform for self-assertiveness and community responsibility. In 1-minute or less participants respond to the prompt: What does ‘truth to power’ mean to you? The hope is that these snippets will:

Showcase the power of people to act purposively and reflectively

Inspire individuals to be their own curators and arbiters of knowledge

Assist individuals in reimagining and reinventing the world in which they live

Validate and localize the experiences of persons

Challenge traditional notions of what it means to be a public intellectual
