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!
