About the author: A native of Philadelphia, PA, J'miah Nabawi's storytelling career began when he met Linda Goss, the Official Storyteller of Philadelphia, PA. He later moved to the southeastern United States with his family to learn more about his historical connections and paternal roots to Gullah Geechee cultural heritage and to share his breadth of experiences from his twenty-five plus years as a performing artist. J'miah's professional work with children and youth in under-served rural, urban and immigrant communities has not gone unnoticed. He has received citations, awards and proclamations from the Pennsylvania House of Representatives, Harrisburg, PA; Blue Mountain Schools District, Orwigsburg, PA; Miami Dade City Council, Miami, FL; Boston's Mayor, Thomas Menino; and spotlights in local media, print, radio and television. Awarded by the National Storytelling Network (NSN) in Jonesborough, TN, J'miah is also an esteemed recipient of the ORACLE Award for Outstanding Service and Leadership in the Southeast for service to his community through storytelling. J'miah is currently active on Georgia State Arts Council's (GCA) Traditional Artist roster and on South Carolina Arts Commission's (SCAC) Teaching Artists roster. ~ The Elijah Agency "Mr. Nabawi is one of Savannah's most visible and favored storytellers. He has been the community's choice for various festivities, with no barriers on race, ethnicity, or age. Whether it is through the Live Oak Public Libraries, The Telfair Museum, local churches, schools, universities, the leadership and service that he continues to provide through his profession is legendary here amongst Savannahians." ~Dr. Otis S. Johnson, Former Mayor of Savannah, GA The author's favorite quote: "I believe in the complexity of the human story, and that there's no way you can tell that story in one way and say, 'this is it.' Always, there will be someone who can tell it differently depending on where they are standing. This is the way I think the world's stories should be told, from many different perspectives." ~ Chinua Achebe
