Join Miss Donna the storyteller as she shares stories and songs in celebration of Black history and culture.
Donna Willingham is a retired Branch Manager from the Cleveland Public Library system. She is also an “always learning” Storyteller. Stories shared strongly emphasize African and African-American culture, and are tailored to be shared with either youth or adult audiences.
Ms. Willingham uses storytelling as a means for highlighting and illustrating morals, offering encouragement, and stimulating imaginative thinking. According to Ms. Willingham, “If a message can be passed from a story that eases an emotional hurt, helps to illustrate the importance of a moral, or just brings out a good “laugh”, then I’d like for that to happen”.
Ms. Willingham is a member of the Cleveland Association of Black Storytellers, and a Life Member of the National Association of Black Storytellers.
Presented in partnership with the Cleveland Association of Black Storytellers.
For students in grades K-5. Registration is required.
Supported by the Friends of the Beachwood Library.
