Every tongue got to confess : Negro folk-tales from the Gulf states

Hurston, Zora Neale (Author). Kaplan, Carla (Added Author).

Summary

Summary: 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.
