Travelin' to Tell! OCTOBER!
On September 28 - 30, I was one of several featured tellers at the Black Storytellers annual Signifyin' & Testifyin' Festival in Minneapolis. Blessings to the coordinators and supporters of this event, especially Nothando and Vuzumusi Zulu, and Beverly Cottman--I miss that peach cobbler! Baba Oba William King, Valerie Tutson, Mother Elisha Minter, Mama Koku, Mitch "Gran'Daddy Junebug Capel, Toni Simmons, and Aunty Bevely Cottman, and me...if you weren't there, you missed a homecoming!
All this leads up to...the National Storytelling Festival in Jonesborough, Tennessee! See you there!
