The Stories of Us is a collection of stories that dig deep into intercultural conflict between African Americans and Latinos, African Diaspora identity and Afrolatinidad. Think of it as a scrapbook of experiences, histories and feelings on the stage. It’s takes you through stories about African roots in Mexico, the time you told your brother you were dating a “Black girl” and that moment you were proud of your heritage. The Stories of US details our stories as people of color trying to navigate each other’s worlds and build one together.
"On this note I send gratitude to Robinson, as her introducing Stories of Us to the Austin landscape has been an opportunity for audiences who may not have the perspective to see straight into the heart of one living on the border—of culture, and of socio-geographic space. The truth is, this world can be as confusing as it can be beautiful, as people try to create labels and categories; to squeeze a person into a box and tie them to an identity. However, much understanding can be gained from a simple conversation. "
