Dr. Johnson-Ross's lecture was really one of a kind. Hearing about her stories of traveling the world, living in 21 different houses, and many different countries in Europe showed how well learned she was about the different customs and traditions that can be seen in the various stories that we have been learning in the past few weeks. Dr. Johnson-Ross also showed a great amount of pride in the work that her sister and the traditions that her family was involved in. It was beneficial to the information that we learned because of the perspectives that she was able to provide, being part of the de-segregation movement and the life experiences she gained because of it. The progression of her presentation was very well set up and each piece of information lead to the next idea in African-American story telling. One of my favorite things that was discussed about African storytelling was the Baobab tree.
