Jos is a filmmaker, traditional storyteller, and dancer who re-crafts traditional tales to address contemporary issues in communities. Each summer she organizes Stories in Service Day of Neighborhood Storytelling, in which four teams of storytellers share with four neighborhoods. Jos also founded an organization, GriotWorks, which works with filmmakers and storytellers to reclaim traditional cultural practices as a form of resistance and community building. Jos challenges racism by elevating heritage and strengthening cultural identities and creating platforms for African American stories, traditions, and culture to be learned and celebrated. Her goal is to use the work she creates as a vehicle for healing, education, and bridging gaps between communities, generations, and cultures.
