    Set in an array of important eras in African American history the nine tales told in this collection leave it to the listeners to decide whether or not the wily protagonists (both male and female) really did outwitted adversaries such as Jesse James, the Nights of the White Gardenia or a house full of ghosts. Great fun and funniness mixed with morals and settings worth discussing. Gr. 3-5
