"Hallowed Ground” Storytelling with Sheila Arnold

"Hallowed Ground” Storytelling with Sheila Arnold

In the African-American culture, there are places that are sacred: from slave quarters to family homes sometimes scarred by prejudice and ignorance; from bridges of the trampled, to churches of the bombed. This program uses stories – humorous, historical and inspirational – to encourage the audience to take a moment and consecrate the places that are sacred.


Sponsored by the Fairfax Library Foundation, and partially supported by a grant from the Virginia Commission for the Arts (VCA) and the National Endowment for the Arts.
