Minnie stringer, C.L. Threatt and Emmett Woods gave presentations that got children clapping and chanting.

Joseph Trimble, Consultant, ASU National Center, says “We want them to see artists cause we can do and be anything and we want them to identify and strive to be anything they want ot be their only limitation is their imagination and we want them to see to see that and hear it and go out and write their own great stories.”
