Bill Cosby in Aesop's Fables. Black History Month@WatchBLACK
Two Children wander into a mysterious and magical Forest where they meet Aesop the father of moral storytelling who tells the children of the tale of the Tortoise and the Hare.
Background and reason for this post:
Most people can remember a few fables they enjoyed being read or told as a child such as: “The Tortoise and the Hare,” or “The Boy Who Cried Wolf.” Have you ever thought about where these tales originated. It appears that the fables originated from an ancient and famous Black storyteller named Aesop. Aesop was born around 620 BC, and most of his fables became a collection of brief fables that were usually involving anthropomorphic animals. White People claim that he wasn't and try to show statues which wasn't him as being Aesop. Differing from the accounts of the Greeks at the time which describe Aesop as being Black. Time to reclaim him.
Here a special TV film aimed at Children sees Bill Cosby as Aesop in this children's adventure.
