“We all want this place to be a better place. And we have something we can bring some instruction to, guidance to, some exposure to … And how we participate in our community is very important to us.

episode 33: SB 30 Episode 33: Telling Your Story On Stage. Talking Spillit Memphis with Josh Campbell

“We (originally) called it Memphis Spillit Center Stage, and we curated the stories. We had people invited to come up and tell their stories, and they had ten minutes to tell their story.

Everyone has a shared moment, but it’s really about connecting...

episode 32: SB 30 Episode 32: The Art of Storytelling, with Author, Historian & Filmmaker Willy Bearden

“She made me feel like I was the most special person in world. She was golden, with an ephemeral, unassuming charm. She was also direct and uncompromising. I recall complaining at the coffee stand about something trivial having to do with my appearance… and Mary immediately shot back with ‘Now you must say something nice about yourself.’ She insisted absolutely that I say at least one positive thing about myself. It’s as though she didn’t want anyone speaking ill of her new friend...
