Album Notes
Internationally renowned storyteller, Diane Ferlatte, has frequently traveled the globe, from Alaska to Florida, from Europe to Senegal to Singapore & Malaysia. Steeped in the oral tradition, her childhood was spent passing time on her grandparent's porch in Louisiana, listening to neighbors and family swap stories, lies and tales. Through stories, songs, dance, sign language, humor and audience participation, she brings her tales to life and touches all with a repertoire of folktales, myths, legend, fables, as well as personal and historical stories. She has been honored with grants from the National Endowment for the Arts & received the National Storytelling Network's Circle of Excellence Award. Her recordings are also award-winners, including awards from Parents' Choice, American Library Association, National Parenting Publications, iParenting Media, Storytelling World, & a 2007 Grammy Nomination. Erik Pearson often accompanies Diane on banjo & guitar.

Parents' Choice Review:
Cultures and generations come together through kind acts and deeds in Diane Ferlattte’s latest collection of (mostly) personal stories about prejudice and racial strife. Ferlatte relates how her family coped with such problems in the 40s and 50s when she was growing up in the south. These stories demonstrate how her father “kept on the sunny side of life” as he dealt with unkind acts that he and the family endured; how she responded with kindness to her initially negative white mother-in-law; and how heroes and “sheroes” face danger caused by unfounded biases. The underlying message throughout the CD is: Be very careful how you treat people, because you never know what the “end” may bring.
