Published 3:14 pm Thursday, March 1, 2018

Dylan Pritchett, author and storyteller from Williamsburg, recently visited Fuqua middle and lower school students. The event was sponsored by the Fuqua School Parent, Teacher, Student Association (PTSA). Pritchett is known for weaving African and African-American culture into the past setting of American cultures. Meeting with the lower school first, Pritchett spoke about cooperation and perseverance. Students were included by showing off their performance skills with traditional African instruments introduced by Pritchett. He spoke to middle school students about other topics, including family and appreciation of the place that families originate from, as well as respect for others. Pritchett emphasized that there are people that aren’t the same, and they need to be embraced.
