Beneath Our Skin is a storytelling project for Black Vermonters. It is the result of a partnership with Clemmons Family Farm for an innovative approach to better understand the needs and perceptions on what will improve vaccination access and uptake among Vermonters who are Black/African American and/or of the African diaspora. Beneath Our Skin uses digital storytelling and visual and performing arts as culturally relevant methods to gather and share stories from Black Vermonters about their vaccination choices and experiences.
