March 2 @ 11:00 am – 12:30 pm
Missouri is rich in its history, folklore, and storytelling. The bicentennial year offers a range of opportunities to engage in our state’s history and culture through storytelling with performances, workshops, poetry, book talks, online resources, and more! Join us for this live, virtual program and hear how organizations around the state are preserving the stories of our past and engaging new audiences.
We’ll be joined by Lisa Higgins, Missouri Folk Arts director at the University of Missouri; Mark Livengood, Story Center director at Mid-Continent Public Library; and Kansas City Black History Project members Carmaletta Williams, executive director of Black Archives of Mid-America and Brent Schondelmeyer, deputy director of the Local Investment Commission and trustee of the State Historical Society of Missouri. Plus, we’ll have a special guest joining the program to share a story!
