Author and Storyteller Sylvia Payne presents We Have Stories To Tell on Sunday, November 8, from 3-4 pm. Payne believes that we all have stories, whether they are personal stories, family stories or otherwise. Listeners will discover that they have stories to pass on to other family members. She invites them on a memorable journey as she shares stories about life and growing up. This presentation is made possible by a grant from the North Carolina Humanities Council. The North Carolina Humanities Council is a nonprofit foundation and a state affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities.
On October 11th from 3-4 PM, participants learned about three courageous African American Tar Heels who escaped to freedom and authored slave narratives: Harriet Jacobs, of Edenton; Moses Roper, of Caswell County; and William H. Singleton, of New Bern. History educator Laurel Sneed discussed how these three slave narrative authors left their mark on the North American Slave Narrative Literary Tradition.
