I have won the Missouri Arts Council's "Individual Artist of the Year Award" and the "Griot's Award from St. Louis's Black History Museum in 2005 for my work with storytelling. I am the 2010 recipient of the Governor's Humanity Award for my book (published by the University of Missouri Press in 2009). I am a 70 year old recovering stroke victor. I speak about my miraculous recovery to health organizations. I also give speeches and performances covering the benefits of storytelling in schools at conferences and festivals. I am currently employed as "Artist in Residence" at The Mark Twain Boyhood Hone and Museum in Hannibal, Missouri.
