Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: During a time when young men have a hard time grasping what it means to sacrifice and take care of the family and young ladies have forgotten the art of what it means to take care of a household, raising children, and instilling morals and values in them . . . The Seven Sons and Seven Daughters is a heartwarming tribute that gives the depiction of a strong black woman who loved hard and allowed it to show in her everyday life. It is an epic tale of struggles of an ex-alcoholic father, who-through the grace of God-was able to lay down the bottle and pick up salvation and a new determination on life. It is the story of strength, adversity, spirituality, and growth, laced with the pain and tragedy of death and life after death. The Seven Sons and Seven Daughters is a gentle reminder of the days when blacks had little to no rights, with little to no resources to do much to better self and how a little Mississippi family found the strength to overcome every obstacle that was placed before them. In a day and age where technology has taken over the world, where children would rather stay in the house and play video games than to play in the park or play a good game of tag or freeze football. During an era where little girls don't see the joy in playing with Barbie's or playing dress up, in their mother's old clothes.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: The 'Seven Daughters' represent the daughter - to-daughter maternal line that begins in 1766 with my 5th great grandmother, Henrietta Perrill Caliman. From Henrietta to my mother, Joyce Hilton Bransford Byrd, is a seven generation journey of colonial America for families of color; enslaved and free! Each daughter's life frames another generation and another period in the building of America. Births, marriages, letters, photographs, wars, epidemics, and pioneer migrations mirror the history of our families against the backdrop of our nation's growth. They were teachers, soldiers, farmers, activists and visionaries whose lives span 350-years of love, sacrifice, perseverance and committment to generations to come. Its the amazing collection of personal stories that is uniquely American that depict one son's journey of discovery and hope.

Download or read book Maithil Women's Tales written by Coralynn V. Davis and published by University of Illinois Press. This book was released on 2014-06-30 with total page 272 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Constrained by traditions restricting their movements and speech, the Maithil women of Nepal and India have long explored individual and collective life experiences by sharing stories with one another. Sometimes fantastical, sometimes including a kind of magical realism, these tales allow women to build community through a deeply personal and always evolving storytelling form. In Maithil Women’s Tales, Coralynn V. Davis examines how these storytellers weave together their own life experiences--the hardships and the pleasures--with age-old themes. In so doing, Davis demonstrates, they harness folk traditions to grapple personally as well as collectively with social values, behavioral mores, relationships, and cosmological questions. Each chapter includes stories and excerpts that reveal Maithil women’s gift for rich language, layered plots, and stunning allegory. In addition, Davis provides ethnographic and personal information that reveal the complexity of women’s own lives, and includes works painted by Maithil storytellers to illustrate their tales. The result is a fascinating study of being and becoming that will resonate for readers in women’s and Hindu studies, folklore, and anthropology.

Download or read book Folktales of the Jews, V. 3 (Tales from Arab Lands) written by Dan Ben Amos and published by Jewish Publication Society. This book was released on 2011-05-01 with total page 873 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Thanks to these generous donors for making the publication of the books in this series possible: Lloyd E. Cotsen; The Maurice Amado Foundation; National Endowment for the Humanities; and the National Foundation for Jewish Culture Tales from Arab Lands presents tales from North Africa, Yemen, Lebanon, Syria, and Iraq in the latest volume of the most important collection of Jewish folktales ever published. This is the third book in the multi-volume series in the tradition of Louis Ginzberg?s timeless classic, Legends of the Jews. The tales here and the others in this series have been selected from the Israel Folktale Archives (IFA), named in Honor of Dov Noy, at The University of Haifa, a treasure house of Jewish lore that has remained largely unavailable to the entire world until now. Since the creation of the State of Israel, the IFA has collected more than 20,000 tales from newly arrived immigrants, long-lost stories shared by their families from around the world. The tales come from the major ethno-linguistic communities of the Jewish world and are representative of a wide variety of subjects and motifs, especially rich in Jewish content and context. Each of the tales is accompanied by in-depth commentary that explains the tale's cultural, historical, and literary background and its similarity to other tales in the IFA collection, and extensive scholarly notes. There is also an introduction that describes the culture and its folk narrative tradition, a world map of the areas covered, illustrations, biographies of the collectors and narrators, tale type and motif indexes, a subject index, and a comprehensive bibliography. Until the establishment of the IFA, we had had only limited access to the wide range of Jewish folk narratives. Even in Israel, the gathering place of the most wide-ranging cross-section of world Jewry, these folktales have remained largely unknown. Many of the communities no longer exist as cohesive societies in their representative lands; the Holocaust, migration, and changes in living styles have made the continuation of these tales impossible. This series is a monument to a rich but vanishing oral tradition. This series is a monument to a rich but vanishing oral tradition.
