Unfolding the Stories of Childhood, Race, and Rural Life in North Carolina. In the 1930s Tobe, a six-year-old African American J boy asked a question of his white school teacher. J "Why does no one in my books look like me?" I From that question emerged Tobe: A Six-Year-Old I Farmer, the first children's book to use photographs f to depict daily life for African Americans in rural f North Carolina. m In 2008 Dr. Benjamin Filene set out to interview people in those photographs, students of the author, and anyone from the communities the book documents. What he discovered were heart-warming stories of family and community that provide lessons for us all. Join us for this Road Scholars presentation sponsored by the North Carolina Humanities Council.
