  • "In this book Zora Neale Hurston records the voices of ordinary people and pays tribute to the richness of Black vernacular--its crisp self-awareness, singular wit, and improvisational wordplay. These folk-tales reflect the joys and sorrows of the African-American experience, celebrate the redemptive power of storytelling, and showcase the continuous presence in America of the Africanized language that flourishes to this day."
