Ramona Barnes Pate
After having to reschedule several times due to weather conditions, local storyteller Ramona Barnes Pate came to Prospect in celebration of Black History Month.
Mrs. Pate engaged students by bringing life to fables, fairytales, poems, and African folktales.
The students enjoyed listening and interacting with Mrs. Pate as she told stories. Mrs. Pate encouraged the students to go to their library to find books focusing on African folktales. It is Mrs. Pate’s hope that the students will keep the stories she told alive by retelling them to others.
