NNS video: Of truth and consequences: Teen tells his story
Ex Fabula is all about stories that connect people and communities.
The group took a step toward bringing youth into the mix when it held its first-ever teens-only story slam on Milwaukee’s South Side.
Teen storyteller Joshua Ceja took the stage to remember a childhood lesson about owning up to your mistakes.
