Who are the Kuumba Storytellers of Georgia? 

We are griots, puppeteers, music makers, story weavers, imagination builders, dream keepers and more.  The face of Kuumba is changing and growing. We are teachers, actors, drummers, biblical pundits, educators, story stretchers, librarians, story swappers and you. We are Decades of Experience. Kuumba Storytellers, Inc. is an Affiliate of the National Association of Black Storytellers (NABS).

In 1995, several local Atlanta storytellers decided to form an affiliate of the National Association of Black Storytellers right here in Atlanta after attending the National Festival for several years.

Kuumba Storytellers of Georgia was born. Kuumba means “Creativity” in Swahili. The sixth day of Kwanzaa celebrates Kuumba, the ability we all have to put our imaginations to work and use our creative energies and talents to build and maintain a strong and vibrant community.

Kuumba Storytellers of Georgia is a group of professional storytellers who provide programs in schools, universities, festivals, museums, corporate and community events, and churches. Our storytelling classes and workshops are available to teachers and anyone who would like to learn more about storytelling.

We offer educational programs that encourage children to read and help improve language skills through oral communication and self-expression. We also offer professional development workshops on how to incorporate storytelling into your business.
