Pass It On and On and On
Storytelling is a rich tradition that has been passed on from generation to generation. It is particularly vital in the African American culture. Our story, our history, our place of origin was not documented in the books as it relates to our heritage prior to becoming a stolen people forced to work, build, and produce on stolen land for Anglo Americans who stripped us of our name to give us a sir name and a different language to navigate.
Storytelling was and still is vital to continue the legacy of the African American experience. Through storytelling our history is recorded through our lens, questions are answered from our perspective, lessons are taught and new stories are stored. It is power, authenticity, and validation in being the author of our history. There is so much to learn from the elders in your family and community. Listen and learn. Storytelling is our heritage and our gateway to the future, make sure and visit our online store and purchase you a Storyteller Tee! www.northseventhstreet.com
