Storytelling is as old as the earth, yet as fresh as the rain. In my touring program I feature stories from the African diaspora. The stories selected share universal truths. It is my goal to entertain, educate and exalt the human spirit through my work. Each program includes a minimum of three stories of varying lengths. The length of the story is suited for the audience. During Kicks For Kids the longest story will not exceed ten minutes. In Animals and Other Folk the longest story is thirty minutes.
In school settings I prefer an audience that does not exceed two hundred people, who are close in grade and age. Usually the groups will be K-3rd grade, 4th-7th grade and high school audiences of 10th, 11th and 12th grades.
Each program begins with a storytelling song that sets the tone of the program. As a teller I incorporate a lot of audience participation which may include repetition of a phrase, finger snapping or some other involving behavior. The program includes a range of emotion from humor to pathos.
