        African Roots | Georgia Stories

        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. These folktales were recorded by Joel Chandler Harris and known as the Uncle Remus stories when published.
