Culture Keepers

SUMMARIZATION

We explore…aspects of Charlotte, North Carolina’s history, schools, students, gang signs, civil rights, decolonization, digital community-building, accessibility, and the African diaspora.

Kali Ferguson is a storyteller, culture keeper, and movement-inspired educator based in Charlotte, NC. She believes in movement and storytelling as tools for decolonizing learning and creating space for personalized understanding. Through her in-person and upcoming web-based work, Kali taps into dance and storytelling as a means of self and cultural inquiry as well as a catalyst for social change.

Her first course goes live on October 10, 2016 to commemorate the lie of Columbus Day.
