Dr. Mama

About Dr. Mama

I am a college professor, a writer, and an African storyteller. My storytelling is a blending of stories, poetry, music, and dance. What has sustained me as a storyteller all these years is my faith in the power of stories and storytelling to open the mind, and enlarge human sympathies. I use stories and storytelling as a multicultural teaching tool to teach literacy skills, writing and communicative skills. As a storyteller I strive to instruct, to entertain, and to inspire.
