Oral Histories: Spoken word night in celebration of Black History Month
PUBLISHED : October 20, 2022
WORDS : Don John
Oral history allows people whose voices might not otherwise be heard to share their experiences. We hope this evening will be an opportunity share histories, through the creative medium of storytelling. The act of retelling life events can help people understand their lives and often contribute to a sense of wellbeing and identity both for individuals and communities.
