The African American Museum in Philadelphia is partnering with Franklin Square to bring you Griot Tale Saturdays! all summer long. A griot is an African oral historian that passes on their culture through the practice of storytelling. Perfect for families, this event will be outdoors and socially distant to keep all participants safe.
On Saturday, June 26th you’re invited to Join Keepers of the Culture (KOTC) for this exciting, educational program exploring the connections between Freedom and Liberty, as we commemorate and celebrate Juneteenth and Independence Day! Keepers of the Culture, Inc. of Philadelphia is an educational, cultural art organization which seeks to perpetuate the African and African-American oral tradition.
Head over to neighboring Franklin Square at 200 N. 6th St. on fourth Saturdays at 1 p.m. to listen and learn!
