Denise in South Africa, 2004, a set on Flickr.In 2004, I traveled to South Africa, as a “storytelling ambassador” with a delegation from the National Storytelling Network, under the auspices of People to People Ambassador Programs (funded in part by a Leeway Foundation grant). 
This experience contributed significantly to my development as a storyteller, a teaching folk artist, and human being.  I gained valuable knowledge about South African folktale traditions, and the use of storytelling as a force for social change. My essay on this topic, A Voice for the Voiceless, was published in the July/August 05 issue of Storytelling Magazine. More importantly, it was an opportunity to open my heart and examine my own biases through dialogue with many South Africans.

In 1993, I was on the Welcome Mandela Committee when he came to Philadelphia to accept the Liberty Medal. These events inspired me to become an activist, and then, a storyteller for social change.
