Aisha Adams Media, the Program Developer of the LREDI Program was quoted by Forbes with the powerful words "While some companies, such as the NFL, are apologizing, apologies won’t create social change nor does it change a company’s culture.” Companies need to take action by changing their policies, practices and showing a real effort for change. Article by Heidi Lynne Kurter.

Lenoir-Rhyne University Asheville is excited to partner with Aisha Adams in order to assist companies as they learn to cultivate spaces of diversity, equity and inclusivity through the launch of the LREDI Program!

I am seeing this photo of the famed storytelling family, Ray Hicks for the first time! It is Rosa and Ray with Ray's Mom, Rena sitting on her bed which was in the front room of their Beech Mountain home. Rosa is holding Dorthy Jean and Ray has Leonard in his lap. And there is the specially made RCA battery operated recording machine - wow! This photo could have been taken by Frank or Ann Warner in the late 1940's - they who recorded Ray and his family on and off for a number of years . Thanks to Edd Nettie Presnell for posting it - and Jack Wright for leading me to it!
Thanks to Laura Hope-Gill for this grand endorsement! Here's what she said about my upcoming 6 weekly story-work sessions at Lenoir-Rhyne University Asheville. Come join us! Do you have a storyteller in your circle of closest friends and family? Here is a fantastic gift for them: a workshop with Connie Regan-Blake. This six-week course allows time for stories to develop, for each participant to reflect and explore between sessions. I did this last Spring, and I've been telling stories every since using what I learned. There's more to telling a good tale than simply having one to tell. Connie generously shares her wisdom and serious skills--from knowing what kind of cough drop to use to knowing how to stop thinking your words aren't magic.
This winter take the opportunity to nurture new stories to grow in 6 weekly sessions with Connie at Lenoir-Rhyne University Asheville.
For my Asheville/Black Mountain buddies - hope to see you at this performance next Saturday evening. And I am delighted that Donna Marie Todd will also take the stage and share one of her 'not to be missed' true stories!
