Vanessa Johnson will share stories in the LPL's Carman Community Room starting at 6:30 p.m. Thursday, June 16, that will help anybody who participates in her session relate to her passions that tie to Juneteenth.

Storytelling with Vanessa Johnson: The Soft Whispers of Ancestors is the subject of this week's library column for the Eagle News Online/Star Review.

Johnson will share traditional tales from Africa, African American culture and the African diaspora.


Vanessa Johnson considers herself a griot, a West African storyteller, historian, praise singer, poet or musician.
