The Griots Journey:
Vibrant & Riveting!

In The Griot’s Journey, Adwoa Badoe retells the history of Africa and Diaspora from early beginnings to the present. Using myth, epic, folktale and history, she tells of Obatala, Sundiata, Harriet Tubman and Mandela. This spectacular experience is made more so by the singers, drummers, dancers and the audience who make up the village that she speaks to. This is a great resource for anyone’s experience of Black History.
