Twisted Storytellers Team with Chalkbeat to Tell Detroit School Stories
DETROIT, MI –– The award-winning Secret Society of Twisted StorytellersⓇ and Chalkbeat Detroit will bring stories from teachers, students and parents of Detroit Schools. The award-winning, monthly event has received positive reviews and has been recognized for its artistic contribution to Detroit,
“In a society that feeds on reality television, celebrities and social media, people are typically unaccustomed to this level of raw truth, these microscopic views into other people’s lives,’’ says Kimberly Hayes Taylor of TBDMag. “Even among other shows that feature storytellers, this is on another level.”
“I ain’t seen nothing like it,” says Dick Gregory. “Stay in touch with the storytellers. It can heal.”
The Society’s next event “School Days” will take place Friday, March 17th, 8PM at The Wright Museum. Asenath Andrews, Founding Principal Catherine Ferguson Academy, Journalist, Chastity Pratt Dawsey, Journalist, Bridge Magazine and three winners of Chalkbeat Detroit’s story submission contest will tell true, personal stories on the theme.
The Secret Society of Twisted Storytellers has a mission to connect humanity, heal and transform community by providing an uplifting, thought-provoking, soul-cleansing entertainment experience through the art and craft of storytelling.
