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

Today, we bring you part two 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 also shares stories in forms found throughout the African Diaspora.
