The Other Side(s) of the Story

"American history is longer, larger, more various, more beautiful, and more
terrible than anything anyone has ever said about it."

James A. Baldwin

Kudos to Denzel Washington and Oprah Winfrey for producing this great movie. If you haven't seen it The Great Debaters, please do.

I LOVE that these artists are using their power and influence and MONEY to tell important stories that don't often get told.

I also love the movie's thesis that "having a voice is critical to social change."

When I think about how long and how many black and other folks have been left out of our cultural discourse, I don't lament the fact that today's media is "crazy distributed."

Do over 100 million blogs make it harder to discover, "the truth?" Yes. But maybe that's not such a bad thing.

If I have to choose, I'd rather have our collective stories - about the War in Iraq, the Recession, and Obama's Imminent Election to the Presidency :)- be debated, discussed and narrated by as many folks as possible. This seems like a much safer route than leaving the power of storytelling in the hands of the few. Unless of course, I'm one of the few! :)
