33rd Annual Black Storytellers Festival Signifyin’ & Testifyin’ – Minneapolis, MN

The thirty third iteration of the Black Master Storytellers Festival continued in 2023 with heavy hearts after losing two master storytellers, including the matriarch of the festival, in 2023. Six months ago in March, Mrs. Beverly Cottman passed while visiting Egypt and in September, Mrs. Nothando Zulu transitioned.
