Paul Freeman is an accomplished jazz singer, poet, storyteller, and songwriter, who has captivated audiences for more than two decades throughout the country. He’s a member of the Kuumba Storytellers in Atlanta, Georgia and the Southern Order of Storytellers. Some of the most popular stories in his repertoire are historical portraits of James Weldon Johnson, Carter G. Woodson, and Thurgood Marshall. Often during the summer months Mr. Freeman instructs young people in the art of storytelling at youth summer camps in New Hampshire, Maine, the Poconos in Pennsylvania, and the Catskills in New York and during the school year performs at elementary, middle, and high schools around the Atlanta metropolitan area. Mr. Freeman is also a published author of a book of short stories and poems entitled, Reflections of Life, for which he received a first place award in poetry for his poem The Sunday School Teacher. He’s also written several songs for the original new musical Rhymes-n-Reasons, which may very well become a classic because of its heartfelt testament of the impact upon ordinary people during this time known as the Great Recession.
Mr. Freeman earned an Associate of Arts degree from Miami Dade Community College and a Bachelor’s degree in Religion and Philosophy from Florida Memorial University.
