Album Notes
Josie Bailey is a professional storyteller whose spirited, animated performances have captivated audiences all across the Southeast. A native of Georgia, Josie graduated from Georgia State University with a degree in social welfare. She began storytelling as a volunteer project in her son's school. Soon her love of reading and passion for preserving the oral traditions of the past blossomed into a full-time career. Josie has been called a phenomenal and creative entertainer, and has been commissioned to perform by the APEX Museum, Kennesaw State University, the Department of Family and Children's Services, Imagine It!

From Dawn to Dusk: 1880 Celia Elliott Dusk
This is an extremely vivid and realistic depiction of the life a slave. So many of our ancestors lived and died through much of what is talked about in this story. Freedom is something that is valuable enough to give your life for. Thank God for the slaves/ancestors that paved the way for us. We have come a long way, and a longer way to go. We need to continue and increase in uplifting the strongest people that ever lived - "the slave".
