Amanda Adkins moved the audience with her personal story of the most memorable mural painting she had done to date.

KJZZ is partnering with the Arizona Republic to bring you the Arizona Storytellers project on the radio. Storytellers in Phoenix share their stories at live events in town. Some of the stories are about living here, some are not.

Amanda Adkins is a local artist. In 2013 she was hired to paint a mural for the Black Theatre Troupe in Phoenix. Over the month of December, she painted some of the people who helped make that theater so special, including founder Helen Mason. 

You can see her mural on the Helen K. Mason Performing Arts Center at 13th street and Washington in downtown Phoenix.

You can hear more stories like this at our next night of live storytelling Dec. 22 at the Arizona Biltmore in Phoenix. Learn more about upcoming nights or get involved by telling your own story at
