“Black people scared me,
And because I
wasn’t a fan of being
scared, I did my best
to avoid them whenever
possible, going so far
as to cross the street
when encountering
multiples of them.”

Chad Goller-Sojourner
is a Seattle-based writer, storyteller, solo-performer and recipient of a distinguished Washington State Arts Commission Performing Arts Fellowship. Most recently he served as the 2013 Ohio University Glidden Visiting Professor, where his work focused on the social, political and historical dimensions of multi-identity construction and intersectionality. In 2011 he was awarded both an Artist Trust Grant and Creative Artist Residency to further develop his sophomore solo show: Riding in Cars with Black People & Other Newly Dangerous Acts: A Memoir in Vanishing Whiteness. In 2009 he launched a national college tour of his groundbreaking and crushingly honest inaugural solo show entitled: Sitting in Circles with Rich White Girls: Memoirs of a Bulimic Black Boy, which debuted July 2008, was funded in part by the National Endowment for the Arts and has most recently been expanded into a written memoir.
