COLOUR Me Brown took children on a magical adventure as part of Black History Month.
Presented by Ghanian story teller George Fiawoo this popular African storytelling tour stopped off in Suffolk and had children of all ages dancing and singing.
It was held at Ipswich Library on Wednesday and the audience of three to 12 year olds were transported to an enchanted world of magical stories and adventures.
George has been working with children for many years and said it is a very rewarding experience.
"To see the joy on their faces is wonderful. Children are the future and it is so important that they carry the torch of a common understanding," he said.
The stories deal with many areas of culture and use dance and music to help the children open up and understand different cultures.

"It is a learning process for all the children and it seems to go down very well. The stories deal with many different things. One is about animals and how they all come together. This then teaches children how humans from all different cultures can live happily together.
"There has been a lot of parental involvement and through the story telling we can work towards a more accepting society," he added.
