Outreach – African Storytelling on Wheels Program

African Storytelling on Wheels Program

Generously funded by the Ira & Ineva Reilly Baldwin Wisconsin Idea Endowment, this program brings trained UW student storytellers to classrooms and assembly halls to present African folktales in translation and share songs in African languages accompanied by drums and other instruments.


African Storytelling on Wheels is dedicated to creating a greater appreciation of the legitimacy and vibrancy of African cultures and of the capacity of African traditions to speak to universal human aspirations and dilemmas. Learn more>
