Event Description:
Charlotte Blake Alston breathes life into traditional and contemporary stories from African and African American traditions. The tradition may be the strongest in the West African countries of Senegal, Cambia Guinea and Mali where history was preserved and is still passed down orally through the words and music of the griots or jalis. Stories were the way the beliefs, mythology, cultural identity, history, and shared community values of a people were taught and preserved.
