Creative Clubhouse Stories is an interactive storytime class that uses children’s literature to explore diverse narratives through theater, music and movement! This month we are celebrating Black History Month! This year, we begin in the 1930s and travel all the way to 2021.
Black History is not only in the past, it is now! It is the future! In this class, children will explore the power of their voices and actions and how they can be part of positive change in the future.
“I can hear change humming
In its loudest, proudest song.
I don’t fear change coming,
And so I sing along.”
In this stirring, much-anticipated picture book by presidential inaugural poet and activist Amanda Gorman, anything is possible when our voices join together. As a young girl leads a cast of characters on a musical journey, they learn that they have the power to make changes—big or small—in the world, in their communities, and most importantly, in themselves.

Each year our Black History month series shares the stories of influential black folks throughout American history. As we explore their stories, we also explore the contexts that their stories take place in. Through theater, themes around race, racism, discrimination, perseverance, self-advocacy, and creativity are explored. This year, we begin in the 1930s and travel all the way to 2021, ending with a new book by future Black History influencer Amanda Gorman.
