Interpreting the African American Legacy is a wonderful opportunity to keep alive stories and experiences that are important cornerstones of American History. Developing a first-person character presentation is a great way to reflect the human impact within different historical periods. This webinar will cover the basics of creating a first-person character, particularly from the African American experience; and give some strategies for overcoming the challenges and difficulties you may face preparing and/or presenting African American history through first-person characters.

Anthony Gibbs is a teaching artist who has taught and presented many history programs and character impressions for students of all ages. He has traveled throughout the Midwest sharing dramatic historical stories in schools, libraries, museums, and other venues. Anthony captures his audiences with spellbinding performances that keep listeners on the edge of their seats. He is a gifted storyteller and astute in his knowledge of historical content. He engages the audience in his presentations with his commanding presence, historical knowledge, authentic props, and excellent oratorical skills. He studied at the Ohio State University in the field of History. He currently works for the Ohio Historical Society as the Unit Manager of Community Programs. The stories he brings to life are tales of great courage, tireless determination, and long lasting hope. Anthony loves history, and leaves his audiences with a greater respect and appreciation for the power of storytelling and the timeless messages we can all learn from our history.
