as this enlarged I was struck by the urge to cry and I am not sure why........vf

Cheri Randolph replied:

Barbara, thanks for such a heartfelt response. I can think of several reasons, the first might be the living conditions of the slaves, and another might be, as Bob mentioned above, that so many children today have not been exposed to these wonderful stories. Appreciate your v/f!

Marion, IL - United States

Wonderful story and touching image. f/v

Cheri Randolph replied:

William, I'm sure the stories would have a receptive audience. When you next come to New Orleans you should visit Laura plantation for more inspiration. It is one of the more interesting ones in Louisiana. Thanks for commenting and the v/f!

Hermann, MO - United States

Cheri, a fine image and a great back story! Didn't realize that the Uncle Remus stories had other origins than Harris. I love the fact that these stories originated in African culture. I have a friend in Zimbabwe who sent me animal stories from the Shona culture for a long time. I felt that one day I'd edit and publish them. I think your picture and research might be the shove I needed. voted, favorite

v9, great image and very interesting sidebar. In our pc world does anyone remember Br'er Rabbit? A great children'b book that I remember very well, thank you for the history lesson.

Cheri Randolph replied:

Bob, I'm glad that you found this interesting. All the children in our extended family remember the stories well, as Br'er Rabbit was my usual contribution to the story hour. It's funny that any adults who were in the vicinity would also gather 'round.
