The Goodman Community Center has announced the storytellers who will take the stage at the April 27 event, Be the Good: Celebrating Kindness in Our Community. The lineup includes three community members who attended a storytelling workshop hosted by the Goodman Center, as well as Goodman CEO Letesha Nelson. The community is invited to attend the event.

“I’m so excited to share my own Be the Good story, but even more so, I’m excited to hear stories from members of our community,” Nelson said. “The whole evening will be energizing and heartwarming. I hope everyone can attend.”

In addition to Nelson, storytellers for the evening include Imru Currie, Sarah Breland, Martha Pings and Goodman Center Chief Development Officer Dani Luckett. Currie, Breland and Pings all attended a storytelling workshop hosted at the Goodman Center in March led by Mad City Story Slam founders Charles Pane and Zachary Shea.
