Lorenzo "Logie" Meachum is a storyteller, blues singer, scholar, and educator. Professor Meachum was raised on soul music, and brings his take on that festive atmosphere to both education and entertainment. Because funds have been cut so deeply in education and particularly in North Carolina, Logie has dedicated this year to performing and storytelling in elementary, middle and high schools. "Somebody has to let students know that their inherent creativity has value." In January, 2007, at the Greensboro Partnership Annual Dinner, Logie was awarded The O. Henry Lifetime Achievement Award for his commitment to arts and culture in North Carolina. In April of the same year, Logie was named Literary Laurel for the year 2007 by the Greensboro Public Library. Logie Meachum is a remarkable person.
