Product Description

This volume constitutes a treasury of black America's folklore collected by the famous storyteller and anthropologist, who grew up hearing the songs and sermons, sayiings and tall tales that have formed an oral history of the South since the time of slavery. Set intimately within the social context of black life, the stories, 'big old lies,' songs, Vodoo customs, and superstitions recorded in these pages capture the imagination and bring back to life the humor and wisdom that uniquely characterizes the heritage of African Americans. Glossary, Appendix, Selected Bibliography.
