This week, we have a very special 2-part episode. On February 16, 2016, United Way of Greater Milwaukee & Waukesha County partnered with Ex Fabula, a local organization that is committed to strengthening community bonds through the art of storytelling, for an evening of true personal stories all about Fatherhood. Participants included both men and women, fathers, daughters, sons, wives and husbands from all over the Greater Milwaukee area. The event was held at 3041 North, a great local event space, in partnership with Walnut Way Conservation Corp.
The storytellers are unscripted and tell their story without the use of notes. Some speakers came to the event prepared to tell their story, others decided to tell their story when they arrived and started listening.
Megan McGee, creator of Ex Fabula, introduces this episode. Speakers in part 1 include: Nelson Lopez, Dawn Helmrich, Ceasar Crayton, Nakia Hood and Horace Tucker.
