Excellent Book handed by Artist Joey Green. The stories come from the black people in the cities and villages of Africa and on the street corners, stoops porches, in bars, barber shops, and wherever else in the united state black people gather.
Most of them have been written down before, in different words and for different times. Some are still told in Africa, like “The girl with the Large Eyes and “The Son of Kim-Ana-u-eze and the daughter of the Sun and the Moon. Some come from Slavery time, like “High John the Conqueror” and “People Who could Fly.”Some have been told in the south so long that nobody knows where they come from like “How God made the Butterflies” and “How the snake got his rattles”
In this book Julius Lester is telling us these stories not as they were told a hundred years ago but as he tell them now and tell them only because they have meaning now
