WHQR is proud to host “The Night of The Griots: Family, Community, Inspiration, Hope” in the newly renovated MC Erny Gallery October 25, 2018 from 7-8:30pm. Primarily concerned with preserving oral tradition, a griot is a West African storyteller. Speakers from the National Association of Black Storytellers will share narratives of family, community, inspiration, and hope.

The speakers include:

  • Madafo Lloyd Wilson

  • Mitch “Gran’ Daddy Junebug” Capel

  • Joyce Grear

 
This is a family friendly event and is free and open to the public, though we ask that you please RSVP to griot@whqr.org.
