This program is free and open to the public. Seating is first come, first served.

Storytelling is one of the oldest forms of educational entertainment known to mankind. From the West African tradition of the Griot to modern day Moth events, storytelling environments have served as a means to pass along history, shape culture, share helpful lessons, and establish a sense of belonging and community.

The U-M Comprehensive Studies Program and Department of Afroamerican and African Studies invite you to explore themes related to campus life, coming of age, and learning and growing, at this series of Moth Style Storyteller Lounge events. The theme for this final event in the series will be 'Triumph,' stories of overcoming challenges in the college environment. Storytellers include students, faculty and staff, and Voices of Wisdom (alums or community members).​

Light food and refreshments will follow in the UMMA Commons.
