»ASTV is an online webtv “portal” broadcasting short African stories told by everyday Africans, African Americans and Caribbean. Storytellers will be filmed on video that will be featured on the online webtv.
»ASTV will serve as a online village where global citizens can enjoy stories from the Africa, US and the Caribbean.
»A cultural heritage site that will help preserve oral story tradition that has existed for centuries in Africa.
»African Story TV is also an educational hub for students and future generations to experience African Stories and the significance of oral storytelling.

It dawned on me that I had sporadic memories or had completely forgotten those stories. I did research and found that most people have forgotten those folklores from childhood as well.
