Judith Black, one of the nation’s foremost storytellers, creates and tells compelling, humorous, and riveting stories. They are sculpted both from her own observed life and created to augment the missions of educational, historic, and governmental organizations.
New perspectives on our national history, tickling familial dysfunction, aging, and human quirks, are all fodder for Judith’s tales. Featured on stages from the Montreal Comedy Festival to The Smithsonian Institution, to the Art Museum of Cape Town, she has appeared 15 times at the National Storytelling Festival, and is the winner of the Oracle Award, storytelling’s most coveted laurel.
Judith has taught storytelling to build leadership skills at organizations as diverse as ESSEC Business School in Cergy, France, Unilever, and The Rockewell Museum. She has helped professionals, from clergy to therapists to body workers discover and shape stories that forward their personal and professional goals. As adjunct faculty in Lesley University’s graduate school for 25 years, she taught teachers to extend their curricular, cognitive, and social/emotional objectives through this ancient art.
