…a cross between Lily Tomlin and Woody Allen, the hard edge of feminist certitude cushioned by self-deprecating humor that never slides into self-hatred.Boston Globe
Through her craft Black, who has been widely acclaimed for her story-telling, hopes to create a broader understanding of the past by relying on the perspectives of people, places and events not often considered in the telling of stories.
Her performance will begin at 7:30 p.m. in Wiley Hall Auditorium.
The Boston Globe describes her as a "cross between Lily Tomlin and Woody Allen, the hard edge of feminist certitude cushioned by self-deprecating humor that never slides into self-hatred." She is a member of the National Storytelling Network's Circle of Excellence.
Black has been featured ten times at the National Storytelling Festival, and served three times as teller-in-residence at the International Storytelling Center in Jonesborough, Tenn., in addition to appearing at storytelling festivals in Montreal, Canada, Indianapolis, Indiana, Nevada City, California, Harvard, Massachusetts, Burlington and Vermont, to name just a few.
Her commissions have included the U.S. Department of the Interior, the Boston Museum of Fine Art, the U.S.S. Constitution Museum, The U.S. Department of Forestry, the Salem Theatre Company and National Public Radio.
