Storyteller Donna Washington – Facebook Livestream from The Clayton Center
Jul 14 @ 7:00 pm – 8:00 pm

The Clayton Center’s livestream programming branches out in July with a performance by Durham-based master storyteller Donna Washington.

Her one-woman show, Chairs in the Trees, recounts Washington’s experiences as a black performer touring across the country during the Obama presidency and her encounters with people who believed that they know better than her what it means to be black in America.

The livestream, presented by The Clayton Center in collaboration with the N.C. Arts Council and Clayton Cultural Arts Foundation, is scheduled for Tuesday, July 14, at 7:00 PM on The Clayton Center’s Facebook Live page. The show is appropriate for middle school and high school students. Parents are encouraged to watch along with their teens and to engage their students in a dialogue about Washington’s fascinating, funny and thought provoking content.

Washington is an internationally known, multiple award-winning storyteller, spoken word recording artist and author. She has been entertaining, educating and inspiring audiences with her vocal pyrotechnics and deep characterizations for more than 30 years.

She is renowned for her storytelling for both children and adults. Her 11 storytelling CDs have garnered 28 national awards, and she has authored numerous articles about storytelling and education including her very popular blog Language, Literacy & Storytelling. She is also the author of four children’s books: Li’l Rabbit’s Kwanzaa, A Pride of African Tales, The Story of Kwanzaa, and A Big Spooky House.
