Cover to Cover with Denny Smithson - December 25, 2006

Good stories bring people together, and host Madafo Lloyd Wilson has great stories to share!

Today, we bring you part one of "A Season's Griot 2006" focuses on the many wonderful ways a story can be told. Host Wilson highlights the work of the Kings and Queens of Storytelling, a collective whose members artfully demonstrate their storytelling craft. The collective's founder, Mitch Capel, affectionately known as Gran'daddy Junebug, tells his stories in rhyme. Queen Nur shares stories in forms found throughout the African Diaspora. Wilson shares a work of his own in multiple voices, presenting it as a cross between storytelling and a radio play. Opening with a poem by Beverly Fields Burnette.
