Welcome to the Black Storytellers Alliance (BSA) home page. We are a non profit organization dedicated to assisting you in finding the information that you need about the power of the oral tradition as practiced by African people in the Diaspora. Our mission is to maintain the art of storytelling as a primary source for positive instruction and reinforcement of the rich beauty embodied in the telling of "the story"!
On these pages you will find a few of the many Master Storytellers across the USA and Canada who have made that mission an avocation. We'll put the news (the story) in this place and refer you to where others may be found!

This activity is made possible in part by a grant provided by the Metropolitan Regional Arts Council, through an appropriation by the Minnesota State Legislature from the Minnesota Arts and Culture heritage Fund with money from the vote of the people of Minnesota on November 4, 2008.




Based in the Minnesota plains, we invite you to submit your stories and your links for inclusion and join us in our annual storytelling festival entitled, "Signifyin' and Testifyin'"® the last full weekend of September!

This is the link to the National Association of Black Storytellers, Inc. (NABS) that has the links of a number of our affiliates throughout the country. So come back often and let us share your stories!
