About

What We Do:

GriotWorks is a production company and cultural arts organization which connects people around the world to relevant themes in Black culture. We collect, document and share stories through mixed media storytelling, discussions and social media. Our work sharpens audiences ability to critique, analyze and challenge mainstream media by making powerful, cultural change.

Who We Are:

We are storytellers, filmmakers and performing artists who have worked together to establish a signature organization in producing and presenting artistic work based in African American traditions, storytelling and culture. Modeling our work after the role of the “Griot” or “Jeli”, storytellers in West Africa who hold communities together by sharing stories that relay history, educate, honor traditions, share morals and envision a collective future, we aim to serve communities and audiences by doing the same.
