For hundreds of years throughout the African continent, people gathered and told stories. The tradition was the strongest in the West African countries of Senegal, Gambia, Guinea and Mali where history was preserved and is still passed down orally through the words and music of the griots or jalis (storytellers). Stories were the way the beliefs, mythology,  cultural identity, history and shared community values of a people were taught. The tradition continued when Africans were brought to America. Charlotte selects from her wide repertoire of stories and songs from the African and African American oral traditions.  

Lap Tickets are available for purchase for children 12 months and under and only available at the AutoNation Box Office. Everyone in the theater must have a ticket.
