Arizona Humanities Presents: A Story, A Story: Ananse Tales to Live By at Mesa Public Library

Ananse the Spider, a trickster hero of Ghana, is one of the most important characters of West African and Caribbean folklore. Ananse’s tales are told to not only explain the origins of the Akan people, but used to reinforce the belief system that enriches their society. Not just found in Ghana, these stories are likened to Brer Rabbit and John Tales in the American South. Here in Arizona, the stories are compared to Coyote stories of Native lore. Hear these stories and connect them to everyday experiences and the lessons learned. Presented by Akua Duku Anokye. This program is made possible by Arizona Humanities.
