Building Community Through Storytelling
Cara Solomon is a born storyteller. Perhaps it was her earlier career as a journalist that directed her to create Everyday Boston, a powerful young program centered on the idea that “Stereotypes Divide Us and Stories Connect Us”.
Everyday Boston maintains an online multi-media library where residents share their stories. A youth program teaches kids empathy along with interviewing skills, while the Bridge Project provides formerly incarcerated people with a vehicle to tell their stories while becoming part of the community.
“More Than a Vaccine: Storytelling to Build Medical Trust” is Cara’s latest project. It amplifies the stories of Black, Indigenous and People of Color and bridges the divide between healthcare providers and BIPOC.
