Abstract/Artist's Statement

Examining the historical context of Children's Literature in America and the Caribbean, there are common threads that occur. Linked by a complex history of racial tensions, the representation of Afro-Caribbean children are minimal compared to white children. Disconnected from the orality of previous generations, Afro-Caribbean writers utilizes folk tradition and dialect to retell those stories of their ancestors in an amalgamation of oral-literature text.
