Greatest Stories Never Told

Tax deductible

GSNT is a 501c3 organization dedicated to sharing stories of STEAM minority and women heroes through the arts. Our plays, living history videos, exhibits, stories and songs engage communities and build bridges between formal and informal education. We are teachers, actors, musicians, writers, mothers and fathers. We have come together to inspire young people. To show them heroes who look just like them. Heroes who overcame obstacles. Heroes who through perseverance and dedication changed their own trajectories. Heroes whose stories were never told.

GSNT has reached over 270,000 students through our Living History Videos online and our live performances. GSNT raises funding to bring our plays to Title 1 schools and schools with high minority populations. The majority of the schools visited have over 80 percent of their student body on free or reduced lunches. 

But COVID has stopped our programming in its tracks. 

We can no longer perform live for the kids. Our exhibits can no longer be seen at libraries or museums. And without our performances, we’ve lost the funding that kept us afloat. We, though, are committed to our audiences and to our diverse team of artists. We are looking to raise the money that will allow us to survive Covid. We need to purchase equipment to perform virtually and we need to make sure our artists continue to share their talents with these communities. 

Our goal is to raise $50,000, but we’re starting with $10,000.

GSNT recognizes that all students benefit from understanding that minority heroes exist/existed and help/helped shape America. Systemic racism cannot grow in a world where children see all peoples as potential heroes. This universal story bridges divides, opens minds and leaves a lasting imprint across all cultures.

“And it’s true that many people are motivated and encouraged to pursue unusual paths after learning about the accomplishments of someone who resembles them. But, an even greater value is served when someone whose background is different from that of the hero becomes aware of, and maybe even comes to admire or be inspired by, the accomplishments of a person from a group that previously was devalued (possibly because of its minority status). That person’s horizons may be extended just by knowing that heroes come in all shapes and sizes, religious groups, ethnicities and socio-economic groups." Dr. Jocelyn Payne of Tulsa School of Arts and Sciences after seeing The Flying Hobos performance.
