Event honors Black History Month with storytelling

JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) - An event honoring Black History Month was held today at Arkansas State University and it was done using the art of storytelling.

Saturday afternoon at the ASU Museum, there was an event called "A Storytelling Journey: America, the Caribbean, and Africa." The theme was how storytelling has taught children life lessons including honesty and integrity.

"They are learning the same things that children learned centuries, it's the same lessons that we all want our children to learn." says Dr. Lenore Shoults with ASU Museum. She says that there are many other events hosted by the Cultural Diversity Series that celebrate different cultures for different months.
