Love Offerings Accepted

Please consider being a donor to our organization.  Your contribution enables us to expand the work we already do with under-served youth.  It will provide more free programming to community venues that otherwise could never bring in storytellers to learn true information about African American History.  in addition, it assists in providing training and growth to emerging storytellers to keep alive the power of the spoken word.  Each contribution is greatly appreciated!

A half a loaf of bread is better than no bread at all. (Zululand)


Your contribution will enable us to continue keeping alive the power of the spoken word by:

• working with under-served youth to write and tell historical and their own stories

• providing free programs about storytelling of our history to community venues

• sharing storytelling techniques with non-ASE members in community workshops


ASE is a 5031c organization.


Whatever the amount of the donation, each is greatly appreciated!
