Youth Matinee 5: More African Folktales

When: Fri., April 10, 11 a.m. 2015

The art of storytelling is an ancient and rich tradition throughout the continent of Africa. It was through these stories that beliefs, mythology, cultural identity, history, and community values were passed down through generations and preserved. The Renaissance Guild engages the imagination as they bring to life some of the most loved traditional folktales, which celebrate the rich history of various African countries and the Americas, as well as explore how many of these stories are reimagined throughout history and other cultures.
