Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Inc., Upsilon Mu Zeta Chapter’s Foundation, Doves of Peace, Inc., held Storytelling time with “Vanora The Storyteller,” sponsored through a grant Awarded by the River Region Arts and Humanities Council (RRAHC) at the Fifth Ward Elementary School in May 2017. The students learned the art form of storytelling, puppeteer, instruments, chants, movement, and action poems. The art forms were demonstrated to teach story telling and also introduced the students to theater style entertainment. The students saw performances of the “Brer Rabbit and the King,” “God is Greater than the King” and listened to other traditional oral stories.
Many thanks to the River Region Arts and Humanities Council in support of our community services.
