About Kali Ferguson Cultura

Welcome, y'all! ¡[email protected]!
I’m Kali, a storyteller, poet, songwriter, cultural educator & teaching artist/coach. I focus on the cultures & people of the African Diaspora & Latin America BUT I'm a child of the world!

Remember when artists & scholars had patrons in Harlem & Europe during great Renaissance periods? Let's use Patreon that same way if you believe our creative work should pay for bills & artistic growth! Won't you join us?
If you can't promise a regular amount, please donate anything once at https://www.paypal.me/kalicultura & I'll send you an mp3.

My Creative Culture-Story

I started acting in my mom's African American Children's Theatre AND accidentally learning Spanish at age 4. My uncle & dad taught me to harmonize at the same age. I've been reading since before then, thanks to watching my big brother, Taj. 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, Africa, the UK and 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. So here I am, 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 very soon!

Why, K?

For 14 years, I worked in schools, museums, and other public places until I crashed & burned out in 2016. I reluctantly stopped traveling around the Carolinas & Virginia. Now, I'm slowly moving online, but I've got so much to learn.

I'm undergoing massive healing as I manage a mental diagnosis of schizoaffective & heal from double breast surgery (not cancer!). I'm grateful to have limited support from my family & close friends.

However, I need your help getting back on creative track as I speak truth about culture through interviews, musings, stories, songs & poetry. Some of these CultureSeeds will be bilingual (English w/Spanish) for your language-learning pleasure.

Please give your support of $1 - $100+/month as I:

    • Interview cool CultureBirds: folks who create culture who inspire mee
    • Create long-form story shows like "Healing Half-Life" & "Blancaflor"
    • Create original “Culture Seeds” like podcast episodes, poems, songs & stories
    • Teach about "Modern Mythology" & Culture from a Black feminist perspective
    • Learn about what you're learning, creating and teaching.

Please sponsor me at the level you are able. You can stop at any time and come back if you miss me. 

If you can't promise a regular amount (I get it), please donate anything once at https://www.paypal.me/kalicultura and I'll send you an mp3.

Higher contributions enable me to produce more creatively and freely, but everyone deserves Culture Seeds & community so every dollar rocks!

OR

Please share this link www.patreon.com/kaliferguson anywhere. Just tell folks that this is the new (throwback) way to help artists live. My mama always says bread & milk don't have storyteller discounts. Let's not even talk about healthcare!!

Thank You For Your Presence!

You are more appreciated than you'll ever know, especially if you read this far. See you on the other side (of this site), mkay?

Have a creative day,

Kali Ferguson, Cultural Educator
