Cultural Heritage + Storytelling

Yvonne is a multidisciplinary Cultural consultant and Historian with a focus on Igbo, African and Black heritage. She uses Igbo, African and Black cultural storytelling to frame history and help people understand modern global interactions. 


She does this by helping Storytellers avoid lazy stereotyping by getting involved in all relevant aspects of a project to ensure that the end product is an accurate representation of Igbo, Black, Africa and its people…whether it is set in a fantasy world with fictional characters, or real life with known people.
