Kwanzaa Storyteller Generates Audience Response

Helena Daily World (Helena, AR) , December 6, 2004

Summary:

Professional storyteller Chetter M. Galloway, who specializes in African and African-American stories, performed at the Delta Cultural Center Saturday afternoon in front of an audience packed full of parents and children.

The presentation featured stories illustrating the seven principles of the Kwanzaa holiday. Timeless tales with the rhythm of the Jembe drum were told to celebrate African-American heritage.

This month Galloway will receive his masters of arts degree in storytelling from East Tennessee State University. He began telling stories while working as a living history interpreter at the Colonial Williamsburg Foundation.

Galloway stressed the stories serve educational purposes.

"Many times my programs tie into social studies, history, drama, and creative writing," Galloway said.
