The Griot Storytelling Project 

By blending technology and tradition, the Griot Storytelling Project allows the Institute to function as a griot for Bucknell. This ongoing project gathers oral narratives created by members of the Bucknell community in order to build a historical record, to encourage creative engagement with the art and utility of oral storytelling, and to showcase the experiential range of our community in an effort to define who we are at this moment in our collective history.

The Dancing Mind Challenge

The Griot Institute for Africana Studies, in partnership with Bertrand Library, will host the Dancing Mind Challenge on Saturday, Oct. 18. The Dancing Mind Challenge, based on Toni Morrison's reflections in her essay "The Dancing Mind," is an opportunity for Bucknell students, faculty and staff, and community members to "unplug" and read without electronic interruptions or distractions for several consecutive hours.
