The mission of ASE is to promote the art form of Black storytelling!

ASE (ah - SHAY), is a term from the Yoruba people of Nigeria, West Africa. ASE affirms, as we express our spiritual devotion, that there is power in our words; not just the words we speak, but the words and feelings we express in our stories.

 

ASE is thrilled to announce that we will receive a Special Recognition Award from the African American Arts Alliance. This is part of their 15th Annual Black Excellence Awards Ceremony & Gala on Monday, October 26, 2015 at the DuSable Museum of African American History. Wow! We're honored and thrilled! Tickets can be purchased online at www.aaaachicago.org. Online cost $37.50 plus handling. Tickets at the door $40.00.

Dinner begins at 6 pm. The awards ceremony runs from 7-9 pm. A champagne reception will immediately follow. This program is sponsored in part by The Richard H. Driehaus Foundation and The Illinois Arts Council, a State Agency.
