Nothando Zulu: History Personified Online
Well-known storyteller and local legend Nothando Zulu has reached thousands with her lively and engaging storytelling style since she started performing in 1977. As a child she was telling traditional tales in her school in Virginia at the age of 8. Her stories truly bear witness to her rural, southern background. She performs for all ages and sizes of audiences, big or small.
Years of performance earned Nothando the distinguished title of a Master Storyteller, and her skill and technique shines clearly as she captivates audiences. She is the President and Director of Black Storytellers Alliance, a nonprofit organization dedicated to maintaining the oral storytelling tradition as practiced by African people in the Diaspora.
In this History Personified performance, learn about 100 year old Dewbert Thomas, who talks about segregation, Jim Crow, Civil Rights, Black Power, Church and family.
