Sound and Fury, Signifying Much

Minnesota Daily (University of Minnesota, Twin Cities, MN) , September 23, 2004

Summary:

The Black Storytellers Alliance brings together six masters of the tradition in its 13th Annual Black Storytelling Festival.

The power of persuasion will last for three days, during which an array of fables, animal stories and parables will help act as a testament to black cultural traditions.

There’s also a good chance that many black thinkers and pioneers, such as Nat Turner or Harriet Tubman, will have their stories retold.

“I just pick a person from an era that speaks to me, and I will tell that story,” said Nothando Zulu, a storyteller and director of the Black Storytellers Alliance.
