Saturday Storytelling Sessions

The National Park Service Announces a New Program

Storytelling - The Power of light

at the Dunbar Visitor Center Saturday, December 29th - 2:00pm - 3:30pm

The Paul Laurence Dunbar House Historic Site proudly announces a new venture - Saturday Storytelling Sessions. Our first program will start Saturday, December 29th at 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm at the Dunbar visitor center on 312 Edison Street.

This storytelling event will be hosted by Omope Carter Daboiku - also known as Momma O -- who will share a repertoire of folklore. Her first storytelling gathering will focus on the power of light.

"Momma O" will be in residence throughout 2019, managing our Storytelling Sessions every 4th Saturday monthly, from 2:00pm -- 3:30pm. Omope's story repertoire will cover many topics and themes as well as reflect on the cultural diversity of the Dayton community. Sessions will be family friendly and engaging for adults and children. Hospitality will include light refreshments.

Omope, Momma O, has been telling tales since 1990 and serves as the vice president for the Ohio Storytelling Network. She holds degrees in cultural geography and sociology; research and performance has taken her to Germany, Turkey, Nigeria, Senegal, the Dominican Republic and Canada.

The Paul Laurence Dunbar House Historic Site is located at 219 N. Paul Laurence Dunbar Street, Dayton, Ohio.
