Welcome, y'all! ¡[email protected]!

I’m Kali, a storyteller, poet, songwriter, cultural educator & story coach inspired by many cultures and languages, especially those from the African Diaspora & Latin America.

Do you remember learning that artists & scholars were supported by patrons in Harlem and Europe during great Renaissance periods and beyond? Join me in using this space in the same way if you believe my creative work should pay my bills! We can make community-centered story, poetry and music more than an occasional event. Won't you join us?

I would LOVE your support as I:
    • Create original “culture seeds” like stories, poems & songs
    • Design multi-lingual curricula and programming for young folks, families and educators
    • Explore traditional myths and folktales as contemporary metaphors that move and empower young people
    • Provide coaching to teachers, parents and youth as they learn to tell their own stories effectively
    • Reflect and muse on contemporary society from a Black feminist perspective
    • Learn about what you're learning, creating and teaching.

Please sponsor me at the level you are able. Higher contributions enable me to produce more creatively and freely, but everyone deserves Culture Seeds & community so every dollar rocks!

My Story: 

I started acting in my mom's African American Children's Theatre AND accidentally learning Spanish at age 4. My dad taught me to harmonize at the same age. I've been reading since then, too, and that combination is now basically my life's work.

I was a high school Spanish teacher in The Bronx and at Garinger High School (briefly) here in Charlotte, where I've been for 14 years after trying to escape to NYC, Durham and Miami. I've spent years bridging the cultures and communities of Latinx folks with my folks, THE SOUTHERN AFRICAN AMERICANS, I'll call us. Well, really THE BLACK PEOPLE OF THE WORLD are who I study, with a focus on Latin America, the UK and of course the USA. That's where I've lived or traveled and that's the music that moves my body the most. 

After moving from Durham, NC to Miami, I named myself a storyteller/cultural educator immediately after dropping out of grad school and that's the basic journey to here, online, breaking free of reliance on large institutions ALL the time (I'll still be working with them sometimes, but it's draining to see the dearth of life in the faces of my folks in schools and non-profs especially) so I am here, wanting you to enjoy culture with me online.

Visit my website at http://culturestorycoach.com. I'll be rolling out online coaching & courses to help you tell your Personal Parable and reinvent how we learn there very soon!

You are more appreciated than you'll ever know, especially if you read this far.

Have a creative day,

Kali Ferguson, Cultural Educator

Goals
1 of 50 patrons
When we get 50 folks in here, I'll host a live online video storytelling & poetry performance with a theme of your choosing (in my areas of skill of course) based on a survey. Of COURSE there'll be participation and conversation! I plan to do this on a program called Zoom so we can all chime in on video or in writing.
