Fayetteville Public Library

Meeting: The Willard and Pat Walker Community Room

Join us for a workshop on writing to remember.

Janel George, a recipient of the “Illuminating Black Lives Fellowship” from the Writers’ Colony at Dairy Hollow, in collaboration with the Washington County Community Remembrance Project, will facilitate a writing workshop examining issues of race and history. The workshop will encourage attendees to reflect upon people and experiences from their past as they learn about memorializing through writing. Participants will have the opportunity to engage in different forms of writing to explore memories, including journaling, personal narrative/essay and poetry. Participants will also explore issues of race and remembering and learn how writing can be a vehicle for healing, truth-telling and community-building.

Janel George is a Senior Policy Advisor from Arlington, VA. She works on issues related to educational equity and access. George has over a decade of experience working on legislative and policy advocacy and analysis, including as Legislative Counsel in both the House of Representatives and the Senate. She also worked as an attorney with the NAACP Legal Defense and Educational Fund, including work on reforming discriminatory school discipline practices. She also taught self-designed courses, including a course focused on racial justice in K–12 public education law and policy, with Georgetown University's McCourt School of Public Policy. George received a B.A. in English from Spelman College, where she was inspired by the work of Black women writers and was a member of the Toni Cade Bambara Writers. She received a J.D. from the University of Wisconsin Law School.
