SPEAKER: Diane Ferlatte cannot explain how or why she is still here after being diagnosed with stage-4 colon cancer in February 2011. But she can explain what has made those intervening eight and a half years among the best years of her life—stories. For the past 30 years, Diane has been finding stories, telling stories, and listening to stories. Diane is a storyteller with a passion because stories are good for healing. And boy does she have a story to tell!

Internationally renowned storyteller, Diane Ferlatte has traveled the globe, from Europe to Singapore & Malaysia, from Australia & New Zealand to Colombia and Senegal, Kenya, South Africa, India, Jamaica, Turkey, and of course all over the United States. She believes that telling and listening to each other’s stories not only enables us to learn about each other, but also to understand each other better. She loves to tell stories that hold truths touching upon our common humanity.

Diane has received numerous honors including grants from the National Endowment for the Arts, the National Storytelling Network’s Circle of Excellence Award, the National Association of Black Storytellers' Zora Neale Hurston Award, as well as the California Arts Council’s highest ranking. In addition to receiving a 2008 Grammy nomination, all her recordings have received multiple awards. Among her most exciting performances are her numerous appearances at the National Storytelling Festival in Jonesborough, Tennessee, the Tales of Graz, in Graz, Austria, for President Clinton at his first inauguration, and recently at the National Museum of African American History and Culture.

FEE: This event is free of charge.
