A Seasons Griot 2011

"A Season's Griot" is public radio's only nationally syndicated Kwanzaa program. Hosted for the last 18 years by acclaimed storyteller Madafo Lloyd Wilson, this annual one-hour special captures the tales and traditions of African-American and African peoples.  This year's program will explore the concept of peace through storytelling, music and voices from the streets. Familiar and favorite elements of Griot will be in place with plenty of music, and the program will again feature Beverly Fields Burnette, current President of the N.C. Association of Black Storytellers.  Information is available at whqr@whqr.org
