Minnesota’s own NPA (Network of Politicized Adoptees) and curator Eric Sharp present More Kinds of Awesome: Untold True Stories from the Transracial Adoptee Community. Join us live on Zoom as seven adoptee storytellers from around the country share dynamic, heartfelt first hand stories for the first time.
