If you wish to understand a people, do not look to the stories others tell about them; seek the stories they tell about themselves. It is in those words, hopes, and ideas that you will find their true heart. Master Storyteller and author, Donna Washington, takes you on a tour through some of the stories that sustained African Americans and gave them the strength and determination to overcome enslavement, fight for freedom, and find resilience and laughter in the face of injustice.
