Artist, Author, Speaker
Ann Woodford's story spans seven decades of rich experience. Her artwork, celebrating African Americans, tells these stories - each piece worth a thousand words. But if written words are your thing, her acclaimed book, When All God's Children Get Together: A Celebration of the Lives and Music of African American People in Far Western North Carolina, also tells the oft-overlooked Black history of Western North Carolina. Ann can tell you these stories in person, too! A talented storyteller, Ann delivers talks on Black history and other topics related to growing up in the rural mountains of western North Carolina.
Every piece is part of Ann's story. By visiting this site, you are part of her story now, too! Click on any image below to learn more.
