Human Spirit Will Showcase at Live Storytelling Event


December 20th


DETROIT, MI –– The award winning Secret Society of Twisted Storytellers will bring stories of human spirit to the stage at the Charles H. Wright Museum. The popular monthly event is one of winners of the Knight Arts Challenge which funds projects that engage and enrich Detroit through the arts. Satori Shakoor, curator and producer of the event is a recent recipient of the "Spirit of Detroit" Award.

"Events like the Secret Society's bring out the artist in all of us, helping us to think creatively about our lives and our communities and share the stories that bring people together," said Dennis Scholl, vice president of arts for Knight Foundation.

"Storytelling is a way for people to learn more about themselves and each other," says Juanita Moore, president of the Charles H. Wright Museum, which hosts the events. "People coming to these shows experience a feeling of life, growth and excitement through connecting, and that deserves a place to be showcased."

The Secret Society Of Twisted Storytellers' next event "Human Spirit" will take place at 8:00 p.m., December 20th at The Charles H. Wright Museum of African American History. Radio Host, Coco, Author, Eddie Connor, "Unwrap The Gift In YOU," High school Wrestler, Emma Kellman, Rochelle Mays and Lula Odom will tell personal stories of great overcoming. Musical guests include jazz artist, Sky Covington and opera singer, Betty Lane with pianist Amy Jackson.
