The National Association of Black Storytellers, Inc. (NABS) promotes and perpetuates the art of Black storytelling-an art form which embodies the history, heritage, and culture of African Americans. Black storytellers educate and entertain through the Oral Tradition, which depicts and documents the African-American experience. A nationally organized body with individual, affiliate and organizational memberships, NABS preserves and passes on the folklore, legends, myths, fables and mores of Africans and their descendants and ancestors – “In the Tradition…”
