Griot Storyteller Media is a media production and services company whose mission is to blend the power of the performing arts with healthcare in a manner that promotes healing. Their current project is The Stoic Man. As an African American man, Ralph Patterson, filmmaker and partner in the company, expressed the following: “Often African American men have difficulty in expressing their emotional stress. We feel the need to keep it to ourselves. Our unspoken issues can make us feel alone. We call this the “Stoic Man” syndrome and this is the name of our initiative.” The company is currently creating a 6-part narrative drama called, “The Stoic Man.” Within recent years surveys from the US Census, indicates over 6 million African Americans had a diagnosable mental health issue. In the time of COVID we believe those numbers have risen. Zelda and Ralph believe it can be empowering knowing that people like ourselves not only experienced some of the same issues, but through therapy have found ways to create more fulfilling lives.
