Acerca de


The author of Black Dance in America presents more than twenty spine-tingling tales from African-American folklore, accompanied by thirty black-and-white illustrations, historical notes, personal experiences, and the prevailing wisdom on protecting oneself from--or summoning--spirits.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 3-7-An important, interesting collection of African American ghost stories, some of which are traditional, while others are attributed to specific storytellers as they were told to and recorded by members of the Georgia Writers' Project of the 1930s. Passed from grandparent to grandchild, from parent to child, from great-aunts to nieces and nephews, on porches and in darkened living rooms, these selections have chilled the blood and scared the living daylights out of many a listener. They are part African, remembered and retold by slaves newly stolen from Africa, and part American, heard here by black people as they made their way in this new land. In the end, they are African American, a mixture of both cultures. Readers can almost hear the storytellers' voices and, if they allow it, can be transported to a porch in Georgia to be scared silly by the rousing tales. There are several kinds of ghosts here: male, female, animal, and plat-eye; friendly and protective; or evil and harmful. A fascinating book to expand or build a collection on African American culture.
