#SheGriots Challenge

We invite you to join us in celebrating She Griots! Our 2019-20 season has celebrated a number of well-known and lesser-known She Griots throughout history, but the legacy of these phenomenal women lives on through all of us. Their stories inspire us to make a difference and boldly pursue our dreams.

What is a She Griot?

Griot is defined as “a member of a class of traveling poets, musicians, and storytellers who maintain a tradition of oral history in parts of West Africa.” Our “She Griots” season celebrates Black women storytellers who continue this tradition today.

THE CHALLENGE

The #SheGriots Challenge is an opportunity to boldly share your personal story as a She Griot, and encourage other She Griots in your life to boldly do the same.

How It Works

Upload a video with the hashtag #SheGriots to Facebook or Instagram, and answer 2 questions:

  1. What does it mean to be a She Griot?
  2. How have you been a She Griot in your own life?

When you upload your video, nominate someone to participate in the #SheGriots Challenge by tagging them in your post. Try to keep the video to no longer than 3 minutes.

We look forward to seeing your stories, and have fun!
