President Greeting

On behalf of the Detroit Association of Black Storytellers (DABS), I would like to welcome you to our web page.  As storytellers, we must carry on our rich history and culture.

I welcome you to learn about storytelling. It is a skill and art and both have a relationship with each other. We will teach you, through our work shops the ability to learn this ‘art.’ We will guide you, nurture and mold you into an artist.

When you are ready to perform, and that depends on your desire to take flight

We will guide you to the stars.


Mama Jatu Grey – President 2021 -2023
