StitchCast Studio Special Edition: The Divided City IV
Story as Healer in Black Culture
StitchCast Studio Special Edition: The Divided City is a series of four unique conversations in the series will bring historical context around recurring topics chosen by youth in the StitchCast Studio published podcasts, including: the culture of trauma caused by poverty and repeated exposure to violence amongst families of color in St. Louis, stories of disorientation and dislocation of black families, and the power of story as healer in black cultures through time.
Story Stitchers’ youth led by Stitchers Youth Council co-chairs Branden Lewis and Emeara Burns discuss concepts associated with story as a healing agent in Black culture over time with filmmaker and Washington University alumnus, B.D. Architecture, Jun Bae and St. Louis’s own legendary master storyteller, Bobby Norfolk.
