African American folklore no only hands down traditions and wisdom through the generations, it tells the history of a people who were banned from reading and writing during slavery. (This anthology) collects a wealth of tales that have survived and been adapted throughout the years, many featuring characters (like Brer' Rabbit) and motifs from Africa. (It) leaves out no genre of folklore, including everything from proverbs and recipes to folk songs and rumors."
