Our presenters include:
• Beverly Cottman, who tells stories, myths and folktales rooted in African and African-American traditions. Beverly uses storytelling as a powerful tool to transform lives, pass on values, instill pride, evoke self-love and celebrate culture. She developed her expertise as a storyteller during 30 years as an educator in Minneapolis Public Schools and 15 years as a grandmother. 
• Lindsay Walz, founder and Executive Director of courageous heARTS, who will help us discover our roles as community teachers and learners. Lindsay's experience as a youth worker has been strengthened by her lived experience of trauma. She uses this experience to shine light on the prevalence and impact of trauma in our everyday lives.
