On Monday, 11/13/17, at 6:30 PM in the Morgan Community Room, Sylvia Payne, NC Road Scholar, is a storyteller, editor and librarian. She encourages her audiences to realize that sometimes they may have shared stories without even realizing it or that those stories may provide important links to historical events within their own families. Payne stresses the urgency of asking questions of our parents and other elders, and drawing important topics to the surface, as a pertinent way of capturing family histories. Payne shares ways for audience members to determine what some of their stories may be and also shares some of her own.
The program is sponsored by the NC Humanities Council and the National Endowment for the Humanities.
