Philosophy/Belief Statement:

Program History:

I was raised in the Mountains of East Tennessee where I learned to tell stories from family and friends. In 1961 I formed a group of young people who were interested in helping Black kids to learn to read. We got caught up in the "Freedom Summer" in Mississippi and ended up in Selma Alabama. By the Selma/Montgomery March only two of us were still alive. My award winning CD "The Hanging of Tom Brown" is the story of and dedicated to Those 6 who gave their lives for the Rights guaranteed by our Constitution and ignored by so many.

Testimonials:

"The Hanging of Tom Brown" won the Storytelling World Award for "Stories for Adult Listners" in 2014.
