About

Charlotte Blake Alston

Part of Kennedy Center Imagination Celebration 2000-2001

With shekere, talking drum, and a voice that fills the stage with a dozen characters at once, this mesmerizing storyteller has made it her mission to continue griot (storyteller) tradition. Her "why" stories--legends that explain why the moon is in the sky, or how the leopard got is spots--delight audiences now as they have for centuries, and her call and response songs get everyone involved. Join the fun and be a part of an age-old tradition.

For Ages 4 and above
