I just got back to work today, and wouldn't you know, there's a "stumper" question waiting for me on my desk. does anybody know anything about an African-American folktale by this name? The title is the only clue I have, and I'm not finding anything. Thanks in advance, Hollowfox

Has your library got Zora Neal Hurston's "Mules and Men"? It might be in there. I was going to refer you to "The Women's Bible" Elizabeth Cady Stanton's feminist interpretation of scripture, which suggests that Adam was every bit as culpable as Eve. But I don't think it would apply.
Wait! I did read a story, when I was a kid! It was in a book called "Yankee Doodle's Cousins" and it was called "Why the Negro Works So Hard". That might be it.

I can't remember for sure. But....

I think it might be something from one of the Musicals, either movie or theatre.

Can't place which show though.

I found the story that you are looking for in a boo called One Hundred and One African American Read - Aloud Stories.

Good Luck!

Bear in mind that IF Adam and Eve had been Chinese , we would still be in The Garden of Eden !

They would have ignored the Apple and eaten the snake !!
