African Roots: Trickster stories
Click here for Georgia Stories’ African Roots.
In the 1800s when there was no television to watch, movies to see, or video games to play people had other ways to entertain themselves. African slaves brought with them a strong oral tradition of storytelling, especially trickster tales, and told them in the evenings when the work was done. In trickster tales, the smaller and weaker character always manages to get the better of his larger, stronger protagonist by using his wits.
