Tales from the Stoop Storytelling Series about family and gratitude

Stoop Storytelling Series

Community artist Ashley Minner tells of growing up in Dundalk, surrounded by family. Her bond with her grandmother was special.

Minner is a member of the Lumbee Tribe of North Carolina. She recently launched the Guide to Indigenous Baltimore, a website and mobile app, in collaboration with Dr. Elizabeth Rule of the Chickasaw Nation. The guide offers an illustrated history of the Lumbee community in East Baltimore.

And Mary Curtin shares a difficult story about climbing out of deep depression.

Listen to more stories from the Stoop. Find out about the next live Stoop Show on December 8th at the Chesapeake Shakespeare Company.

Sheilah Kast is the host of On The Record, Monday-Friday, 9:30-10:00 am.
Maureen Harvie is Senior Supervising Producer for On the Record. She is a graduate of the University of Maryland, Baltimore County, and joined WYPR in 2014 as an intern for the newsroom. Whether coordinating live election night coverage, capturing the sounds of a roller derby scrimmage, interviewing veterans, or booking local authors, she is always on the lookout for the next story.
