ASE Promotes the Art Form of Black Storytelling 

ASE (ah - SHAY), is a term from the Yoruba people of Nigeria, West Africa. ASE affirms, as we express our spiritual devotion, that there is power in our words; not just the words we speak, but the words and feelings we express in our stories.



 Welcome to Our Website!

Our About Us page points out just how broadly ASE tellers use their storytelling abilities to forge strong community connections.


Our YouTube page shows the various styles and types of storytelling portrayed by our adult and youth members. 


Our Facebook page enables us to better connect with our followers and serves as another way to promote our activities, events and messages.

ASE is an affiliate of The National Association of Black Storytellers, Inc. (NABS). NABS is "The Authentic Voice of Black Storytelling."
