The Griot Party
Griot is a west African word that means storyteller or poet. Oral history is a custodian of the cultural history of Black and Brown people. The Griot Party Experience encourages the participants to heal via the celebration of story telling. Your story makes you human and anyone who strives to deny you of your story is attempting to deny you of your humanity. The Griot Party Experience is a deliberate attempt to help people claim and reclaim their humanity via sharing their story. Feel. Heal. Build. Grow. Ase. Agape. Namaste. Amen.
