The Griots: Keepers of the Stories
The Wichita Griots are a local professional group of storytellers who strive to foster and promote a love and appreciation of reading through the oral tradition of the arts. Three members of the Griots will come to your school for each performance. The Griots’ stories and songs will acknowledge, respond to and celebrate various cultures, and communicate high expectations for acceptance of cultural contributions and perspectives.
I was totally impressed! It was awesome.
