We've lost the fine art of conversing.
Let's get back to the basics-
TALKING

    About Talk Story, Incorporated (TSI)  

TSI is a non-profit organization established for the education and support of individuals living through post traumatic experiences.   We’re dedicated to promoting healing and restoration within our communities through human rights initiatives.  Healing the whole person is imperative to bringing about lasting change.  We encourage others to tell their stories - primarily through talking and writing.        

 

My (Talk) Story

My family’s mantra is “Blood is Thicker than Water” and we understand familial bonds are stronger than the bonds of friendship.  I come from a big family, and we have a genuine love for family.  Blacks in America have suffered from generational trauma for over 400 years and adverse health effects have been passed on from generation to generation.   Like many, my family’s story and my story are deeply rooted in trauma.  

 

7 Days in the Fire

"Sleepless and in the grip of a serious illness for seven days, Helen D. Noel experienced “hell on earth” and lived to write the book she felt called by God to write. Combining faith, family lore, and service to God, church, and country she “talks story” the way only an African American woman committed to living her truth in all ways could." -Kristen Morris
