Diane Macklin


Master storyteller, Diane Macklin, has been described by The Washington Post as having a “dynamic” approach to engaging audiences of children and adults. Her “griotic” style delights audiences as she integrates her theatrical presence, dancing hands, and lyrical voice to create a unique story experience not to be missed. Her training as a cultural mediator and formal classroom teacher lends uniqueness to her commitment to quality programming, education, and arts integration. Ms. Macklin is the resident storyteller for the “Let’s Read About Africa” program at the Smithsonian’s National Museum of African Art and has performed for the Colonial Williamsburg Storytelling Festival, the Reginald F. Lewis Museum of Maryland African American History & Culture, and Wolf Trap’s Theatre-in-the-Woods. Her motto for living and working is “Making a Difference, One Story at a Time.”
