In his one-man show entitled You Don't Know Me Until You
Know Me, Fowlin depicts nine different characters whose
stories deal with issues such as race, discrimination, violence
prevention, personal identity, suicide, gender equity, homophobia,
and the emotional pain felt by special education children.
Fowlin shares stroies that stir people's emotions and create
long lasting learning experiences.
Through Fowlin's riviting performance the YAC hopes to stimulate
teens to introspectively examine their own biases and then
work to overcome them.
Following the performance, participants will be given the
opportunity to interact with each other by reflecting with
students from different schools. It is the YAC's hope that
their peers will leave with a more compassionate view towards
others, work for tolerance in their own communities and speak
out against hate and injustice.
The Youth Symposium on Diversity is a program designed by
the Southfield Community Foundation's Youth Advisory Committee
(YAC). It is presented to high school students from throughout
Michigan with the goal of sharing Southfield's experiences
with differences with students from less diverse environments.
The program is offered free. All participants are required
to bring is an open mind.
