Grammy-nominated storyteller Diane Ferlatte is a multi-award winning performer who has captivated audiences across six continents and throughout the U.S. Diane draws from a deep well of folktales, myths, legends, & fables to inform, entertain, & inspire. While emphasizing African American stories, she loves to tell stories that hold truths touching upon our common humanity, including personal and historical stories. Having a background in music as well as American Sign Language, Diane frequently incorporates both into her performances. Erik Pearson, her musical sidekick, often accompanies Diane on banjo & guitar.
