Re: African 'Old Wives' Tales
In Response To: African 'Old Wives' Tales ()

Hey, I found a link that was very informative. I actually found a couple that were related to Jamaica.

And I also found this publication regarding sea islanders/Caribbean: http://links.jstor.org/sici?sici=0021-9347

And this article regarding Georgia & Geechee/Gullah, which links to Angola and Ghana:
http://www.georgiamagazine.org/archives_view.asp?mon=3&yr=2004&ID=945

Next step, I'd love to tie it back to other regions in the new world and African regions/tribes or did it grow out of Jamaica with it's many cultures (African, East Indian, Scottish, German, Spanish, Chinese, Jewish, Native American). Does anyone else have folk-lore that may match
