Onawumi Jean Moss is a storyteller, narrator, keynote speaker and author. The performances of this talking book and rhythm master encourage pride of heritage, appreciation of cultural differences and recognition of kinship. Her narratives, lectures, workshops, voice overs and keynotes contain extraordinary dramatic expression, inspirational a cappella music, soulful rhythms and improvisation techniques. Her programs enliven the study of history, culture, social sciences, language arts and performance techniques. Her performance is part of the yearlong celebration of the 50th Anniversary of African Americans in Residence at William & Mary.
