Our Stories

From legends to our everyday lives, stories shape who we are.

Hear traditional stories from east African, European, and Native American storytellers. Then, explore the stories we tell about ourselves. How do stories impact our identity? Wrap up the week with a poetry reading and self-awareness writing activities with grand Rapids based poetry group The Diatribe.
