Event Description:

Featuring Rev. Robert Jones, Minton Sparks, Eldrena Douma, and Antonio Sacre.

Rev. Robert Jones is a nationally known and featured African-American storyteller, whose stories combine elements of music, humor, along with emotion, fact and fiction to convey the truths found in our shared culture.

Minton Sparks fuses music, poetry, and her intoxicating gift for storytelling. She paints word pictures of the rural South that put you square in the middle of the people and the places she knows like the back of her hand.

Eldrena Douma is a Native American storyteller. A Pueblo Indian, her experience as a storyteller began at a very young age on both the Laguna and Hopi tribal lands. Today, she travels throughout the United States, inspiring students and adults to listen, think, and read through stories of her personal experiences filled with wisdom and humor.

Antonio Sacre is an internationally touring storyteller, writer, and solo performance artist. He draws from an extensive repertoire that includes folk tales, myths and legends from around the world, focusing on Spanish-speaking countries.
