Griots Among Us

Griots traditionally are West African historians and storytellers. The Griots in our family have shared many stories of their experiences and of our ancestry handed down from our elders. We need to be grateful to the Griots in our family and inspire young family members to become Griots themselves. In this spirit I invite any child or teen of our family to become a Griot. A Griot can share through any form of communication such as art, writing, storytelling, and song. If interested please contact me and I will be happy to lead them on this journey and would like to showcase their narrative here or at the next reunion.
