She and/or her team have performed at National Storytelling Network’s Annual Conference, the Women’s Storytelling Festival in VA, Artists Standing Strong Together, “Better Said Than Done,” International Festival of Arts and Ideas and more.

 A Connecticut native, many of her stories stem from her experience as a multi -generational African American New Englander. Denise believes that sharing and listening to the stories of others has the capacity to deepen understanding. Ubuntu Storytellers brings together her passion for story and social justice.

 

She tells to enlighten and inspire, to laugh and cry and most of all to build bridges of understanding. Denise believes that to know someone we must learn about more than the stories of sheroism and victimization. Those stories are indeed important and should be shared, however to really know someone don’t we need the in between spaces? The places where everyday life is lived. Stories of being.

SELMA:

 

Although the Civil Rights Act of 1964 legally desegregated the South, discrimination was still rampant, making it very difficult for Blacks to register to vote. In 1965, an Alabama city became the battleground in the fight for suffrage. Despite violent opposition, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. (David Oyelowo) and his followers pressed forward on an epic march from Selma to Montgomery, and their efforts culminated with President Lyndon Johnson signing the Voting Rights Act of 1965.
