Terrence Roberts is a master storyteller who weaves his stories like the web of his favorite character Anansi the Spider. A collector of tales worldwide, Roberts is most known for his African and African American folktales. He takes his listeners back to the village square in West Africa waiting for the Anansi story for the day. Roberts will hold a free performance on Tuesday, October 9, at 12:15 p.m., in the second floor east lobby of the H.L. Nowell Union on the Delta State campus. The performance is sponsored by the Delta State University Diversity Committee as part of its Diversity Awareness Campaign.
Roberts draws both children and adults into his web with his animated and interactive style causing both to spontaneously burst out with laughter or jump with surprise at a ghost story. He holds a bachelor’s in communication from Mississippi State University and has 12 years experience as a broadcast journalist, 12 years as a spoken word poet, 14 years as a storyteller, and 11 years as a minister of the gospel.
