One of the most vibrant and complex way to keep historical and cultural records, oral tradition in the African American community has been passed down from before slaves were kidnapped in Africa and forced to work on plantations in the Caribbean and the early United States.

Anthropologist Richard M. Dorson has carefully compiled some of the most beloved and enduring stories in this anthology of folk tales, organized meticulously by theme. Peruse the collection on your own or read out loud to a friend - either way, this is a wonderful way to connect to the past.
