Filmmaker and award-winning author, David Barclay Moore infuses history with wry folk wisdom, metaphorical power, and a splash of magic in his bold and original tale Carrimebac. The Civil War may be over, but times are not substantially improved for the freed Black citizens of Walkerton, Georgia. With exquisite cinematic illustrations by John Holyfield, Carrimebac is a portrait of Black endurance that draws on the rhythms and traditions of African American storytelling to open a powerful window into the past. Listen in as David Barclay Moore and Dr. Sonja Cherry-Paul, New York Times best-selling author and founder of Red Clay Educators, talk about his work and the profound and inspiring ways it can be used in classrooms.
