The Elevator Project 2017 presents Fables & Fairytales from Around the World featuring Afiah Bey (formerly known as Melody Bell)

Afiah Talibah Bey, formerly known as Melody Bell, was born the 5th of 11 children to Marietta and Cecil Bell. At dinner time they would tell stories of family members and friends of the family. She attended ETSU (Texas A&M Commerce) and taught in DISD as a Special Education teacher. Telling stories with the students led to her classes performing for school programs. She became the cultural arts chairperson, and involved the entire school with oratorical and cultural programs. In 1996, she resigned in order to become a full-time Griot (gree-o) – oral historian, storyteller, musician, poet and singer.
