"Radical imagination," says social worker Ozy Aloziem, "is the audacity to live in the world as it is and dream something different." For Aloziem, visualizing a more just world starts with a dinner party game she created with poet Bobby LeFebre in 2020. Here she invites to join her table. Eight guests gather over mezcal and a multi-course meal "to dream, to imagine, to heal, to be fed & filled, and to, for a brief moment, maybe, just maybe, taste liberation." Ozy (Ozioma) Aloziem is an Igbo scholar and the Denver Public Library's first Equity, Diversity & Inclusion Manager. As a critical Black feminist, she amplifies voices of marginalized communities that are left on the fringes of academic research and public policy. In 2019, she served as a UN Practicum Delegate for the United Nation’s Annual Commission on the Status of Women. In 2021, she won the Library Journal “Movers & Shakers” award. Presently, her research is centered around trauma-informed & culturally responsive community engagement, radical healing, and radical imagination. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at ted.com/tedx
