Folktale (fiction), Trade Book

In this anthology of folktales and legends, Virginia Hamilton has collected a compelling set of stories centered on African American women. The book is broken into several thematic sections, such as supernatural stories and fairy tales, and each story has explanatory notes detailing the origins and influences of the tale. The stories are also accompanied by gorgeous, full-page illustrations. While the stories vary in theme, place, and character, they are united by their focus on African American women's strength, creativity, struggles, and beliefs.
