Characters USA & The Moth Unite



In an area as rich in the tradition of oral histories and storytelling as the clay beneath our feet, New Orleans is absolutely seeped in generations of lived and shared experience through spoken word. Finding roots in the preservation of history and culture through the African Diaspora, storytelling has been premiere in defining the geo-social space, vitality, and effusive value of the city; from Congo Square to the front porch.
