This live webinar is presented by Lyn Ford, an American storyteller, teaching artist and author.
Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. said "We are not makers of history. We are made by history." What happens to the spirit of family when its foundation is denied and its heritage becomes sociological hearsay, stereotypes and the opinions of biased observers printed as "history"? For many, that spirit remains in family folklore and oral history. Lyn Ford will share some of the spirit and strength of tri-racial Appalachian heritage in story and photos.
In honor of Black History Month, We've Known Rivers presents special virtual performances to commemorate the African American experience in American history through engaging first-person presentations. Presented in conjunction with the Ohio Statehouse Museum and The Ohio Channel.
