Item description

The Time-Ago Tales of Jahdu by Virginia Hamilton The NY Times, in citing this as one of the "Best books of 1969" described it as "four fables, celebrating the deeds of a 'strong black boy' wrought with pride and talent - and, cumulatively, nothing less than an allegory of the the black man's changing role in American society." Summary: Mama Luka of Harlem had told Lee Edward many stories about Jahdu, including a story with a strong taste, a heavy story, and a story full of mischief, but not until the cool and fresh story does Jahdu assume even a temporary identity. Mama Luka, Lee's baby-sitter, tells him tales about Jahdu who runs through a magical world. HAMILTON IS A 4X NEWBERY-HONORED AUTHOR. Award-winning African-American author sets her fiction for young people in Africa. Book Description: New York: Macmillan, 1969 HC 1st ED. First printing. Although Mama Luka has learned that her building in Harlem is to be torn down, she is still reaching into the air to "catch" Jahdu stories. Illustrated by Nonny Hogrogian. Author's third book. Mama Luka has learned that her building is to be torn down and she knows that she will soon have to move from her "tight little room in a fine good place called Harlem." But once Mama Luka reaches into the air to "catch" a Jahdu story, the encroaching world is closed out and magic prevails. From front flap: THE TIME-AGO TALES OF JAHDU are told to Lee Edward by Mama Luka, who takes care of him while his mother is at work.
