Dylan Pritchett: Essential African Threads

January 24, 2023 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm

From “Anansi the Spider” to “Brer Rabbit,” traditional slave tales have hidden meanings that serve to educate and celebrate African American history. Storyteller Dylan Pritchett brings the early days of slavery to life through these tales that are wound tightly with themes of family strength and morals as well as lessons that teach about character and survival. This event is sponsored by the Virginia African American Cultural Center & Arts for Learning Virginia.
