Storytellers have always been held important roles in Black communities--from Africa to Detroit. Storytelling connects us with our roots in Africa where the oral tradition was used to remember family history, acknowledge special events, and teach societal rules. The Espresso Talk Today is pleased to have Edith Armstrong, aka Mama Edie, on the show to discuss the importance of storytelling. Mama Edie will also present a folktale from West Africa.
