Jos will make a documentary film about Black Storytelling. Her film will focus on recording conversations with young poets and elders within the poet/storyteller community. She will feature and center on their individual works and their fusion of bridging the gap between generations. Her goals include telling her personal story of being a storyteller, creating digital visual media that is accessible to audiences that may not have considered the strength in storytelling, and to distribute the documentary to schools and churches as a tool for community organizing.
