This paper provides a study of four storytelling projects that apply storytelling processes in addressing social justice issues. The projects are located in primarily African-American Communities. Each case reveals organizational, contextual, social entrepreneurial, and evaluative data. The case investigations demonstrate the importance of community involvement and partnerships. The collective summary makes a case for the need of storytellers as community cultural ambassadors.
