The Dark-thirty: Southern Tales of the Supernatural

By Patricia McKissack, Patricia C. McKissack (Author)

The dark-thirty is that special half hour of twilight, just before dark, when everyone hurries home because the spirits and monsters come out. This collection of spinetingling tales ranges from the time of slavery to the civil rights movement. Strong characterization, classic themes, and suspenseful plots are strongly crafted in the oral tradition of African-American folklore.
