About the event


Join us on Sunday, September 24, from 2:00pm – 4:00pm for our Visiting Artist: Terrence Roberts! During this session, we’ll explore the art of storytelling.

Da Terrence Roberts is a jali/griot a storyteller in the West African Tradition of Jaliyaa.  As a teaching artist/storyteller, Roberts embraces the teaching power of words and music. Students are fascinated with the culture, stories, and musical instruments of West Africa.  Roberts’ performances, workshops, and residencies are filled with teaching moments, not just in West African culture but in science, history, and language arts.  Terrence Roberts is known as “Da Story Weaver.”  In the language of the Bamanakan people of West Africa, the ancient title “Da” was one who connected his people to their past and escorted them into their future.
