Abstract/Description

The history of literature for African Americans is rooted in storytelling and song in order to give lessons or deliver messages among slaves. Taking a deeper look into the fables and stories from our childhoods, we can see major differences in how these stories portray African Americans, and as we look to the future how can African Americans deliver stories that are inclusive and uplifting for children?
