Storytelling has a beginning inside and outside. One needs to have a narrative that belongs to her cultural traditions, a people with a history and a voice. One needs a person who is the author of her own story, a map of a place she belongs to, someone who has a self that is free from another’s definition of what and who she is. How does one make sense of a self or the world when stories of different races and cultures made them strangers.

Storytelling in the context of church’s work “on healing history”
