R.O.O.T.S. of Sunflower County
“The R.O.O.T.S of Sunflower County”,19 African American young men in Sunflower County are a part of the Sunflower County System Change Project that focuses on narrative change. ‘Story for All’ an organization founded by Angela Zusman, provides the framework for encouraging narrative change in communities through story telling. These young men have committed to not only telling their own story, but also that of those in their community; helping to connect their true narrative with the experiences of their elders, peers, and family members. The year long program trains the young men in collecting oral history and supports skill building in public speaking, team work , and communication.
