Parent and Faculty Workshop with Onawumi Jean Moss

Onawumi_CU.jpg

We are delighted to host Onawumi Jean Moss as she returns to Blue Rock School for two days of storytelling with our students and teachers. While here, she will also be offering a special evening workshop for parents and faculty. “Courageous Conversations” will explore ways to approach challenging and important conversations on race and injustice with this master storyteller, author, academic, activist and artist. RSVP required. Please call the Main Office at 845-627-0234. Suggested donation $10.

As an African American woman who grew up during the Jim Crow South and the Civil Rights Movement, and went on to guide young people as the Associate Dean of Students at Amherst College for twenty-five years, Ms. Moss has a deep understanding of human relationships and communication.

Ms. Moss’ workshops and discussions are distinguished by her unflinching honesty and humor, her encouragement to all to take on this life-long work towards deeper understanding and growth, and her appreciation of cultural differences and recognition of kinship. Her work inspires courageous conversation within and across social boundaries.

Ms. Moss holds numerous storytelling awards including the 2005 Zora Neale Hurston Award, the highest award given by the National Association of Black Storytellers (NABS); the 2007 Brother Blue and Ruth Hill Award from the League for the Advancement of New England Storytellers, and she has recently been nominated for the National Storytelling Network’s Lifetime Achievement Award.
