Detroit Men Open Up With Personal Stories

Fathers & Figures June 20th

DETROIT, MI –– The Secret Society of Twisted StorytellersⓇ will bring Detroit men and their personal stories to the stage at the Charles H. Wright Museum. The popular monthly event is one of 56 winners of the Knight Arts Challenge which funds projects that engage and enrich Detroit through the arts. The Society will strengthen and expand thanks to funding from the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation. 

“Storytelling is a way for people to learn more about themselves and each other,” says Juanita Moore, president of the Charles H. Wright Museum, which hosts the events. “People coming to these shows experience a feeling of life, growth and excitement through connecting, and that deserves a place to be showcased.” 

"Events like the Secret Society's bring out the artist in all of us, helping us to think creatively about our lives and our communities and share the stories that bring people together," said Dennis Scholl, vice president of arts for Knight Foundation.

The Society’s next event “Fathers & Figures” will take place at 8:00 p.m., Friday, June 20h  at The Charles H. Wright Museum of African American History. Qasim Abbas, Rep. Phil Cavanaugh, Rabbi Yisrael Pinson, Mark and Ben Sweetman, and Author, Dwight Stackhouse, will tell personal stories on the theme.
