ABOUT OUR TELLERS:
Linda Goss is a tradition bearer, a premier contributor to the art of storytelling, and a co-founder of the National Association of Black Storytellers. “Mama” Linda grew in the tradition from listening at the feet of her Grandaddy Murphy and on the knee of her Uncle Buster in the foothills of the Great Smoky Mountains in Alcoa, Tennessee. She is the author of seven books and she has two albums of storytelling with Smithsonian Folkways. In 2019, she was named an NEA National Heritage Fellow.
