The Power of Story Telling

Suba Churchill

At one point in the protracted struggle by the Kenyan people for democratic change, I found myself behind bars, alongside other pro-democracy activists for engaging in what was considered under the Public Order Act an 'illegal assembly'. Then we started telling each other stories of how we got into activism in the first place, highlighting some of the heroic deeds that some of us thought we had done. Little did we know that we were birthing a new generation of activists and civil society leaders. The young men who had been arrested alongside us, some of them finding themselves in such situations for the first time, today trace their 'baptism of fire' into civil society work to the stories they heard from those of us who were a little more experienced while in custody. They say they got their ideological grounding from our stories, and continue to trace their decision to work with civil society organizations to their arrests. That is how powerful story telling can be; innovative, inspirational and enduring.
