Charlotte Blake Alston


Video

Charlotte Blake Alston is a spoken word artist — from storytelling, to narrating to performing as a librettist. She says: “There’s a quote from Lucille Clifton I like to share: “They ask me to remember, but they want me to remember THEIR memories - and I keep on remembering mine”. That quote cuts right to the core of why I choose to pass down traditional tales. My heart, soul, bones, blood, ancestors, Spirits yet to be born - yearn to remember and tell OUR stories.” 

Please be advised the speaker gift is no longer available.
