New Virtual Program: Heritage Storytime – Nov 19

Posted by Global Philadelphia Association on November 17, 2020

The Global Philadelphia Association is excited to present a brand new virtual program.

Heritage Storytime (HS) is a series of monthly storytime episodes presented virtually for children. Each HS episode will focus on a heritage-related theme and will feature a children’s book read-along as well as complementary learning materials and activities. HS nurtures our desire to tell stories about our lives and heritages, past and present, and to learn through these stories. HS is especially important now due to the constraints that COVID-19 has imposed on teachers and families.

EPISODE 1: Oney Judge’s Daring Escape from Slavery

Join us for our first virtual Heritage Storytime episode! We’ll be at the African American Museum in Philadelphia reading the book “My Name Is Oney Judge” by local author Dr. Diane Turner to learn all about Oney’s daring escape from slavery in George Washington’s house in Philadelphia. Then we’ll learn more about slavery in America with a tour of the Lest We Forget Museum of Slavery in Germantown. We’ll have lots of additional learning resources and activities to share.

Date: Nov 19, 2020
Time (two showings): 1:00 PM and 4:30 PM

Audience: Children in grades 4-8, families, teachers

Everyone who registers to attend this virtual event will be entered to win a FREE copy of the Philadelphia World Heritage Coloring Book.
