Gwendolyn J. Napier heard stories from her mother, Mother Sarah F. Jackson as a child. Her mother
would tell her stories for hours from memory about her childhood, family and about life. She was inspired
by her constantly asking, How do you tell stories? Mother Jackson replying Storytelling comes
from the Heart, just be yourself." The experiences and wisdom from her mother, life experiences,
and professional training made her realize that everyone has a Story- to- Share, and there are others
who would Love-to-Listen.
Since 1990, Ms. Napier has worked with young children, youth,
and adults. She is currently employed by Fulton County Board Of Education.
She has worked with many school-wide and community based programs. The school-wide
programs consist of Muffins for Moms, Donuts for Dads, Career Day, Family Reading
Night, and Black History Month. Her community involvement consist of performances
at the Historic Oakland Cemetery, National Archive History Center, Callanwolde
Fine Arts Center, National Black Arts Festival Community Reading Programs,
Apex Museum, Jack and Jill Organization , Fulton County Library Systems, Southview
Cemetery, Atlanta Speech School and the Roswell Convention and Visitors Bureau.
Early Literacy for young children is extremely important. She focuses on creating
stories that will keep audiences engaged through songs, music, movement, dancing,
instruments and props to make the stories come alive and stay alive in their
minds. "She brings a Story, Love, and a beautiful Smile with her each
time she performs." Ms. Napier enjoys reading and telling a variety of
stories from cultures around the world. She was inspired by her recent trip
to West Africa where she had the opportunity to experience the Nigerian culture
She uses realistic goals and strategies to reach the youth through real life
experiences to assist and motivate their self-esteem, and to remind adults
that our history is not lost, but our past experiences from the roots of our
ancestors connect us to the present allowing us to spread our wings to soar
into the future. A future of Hope and Change.
