When UNC Press published Stella Gentry Sharpe's "Tobe" in 1939, it was hailed as one of the first children's books to offer a dignified portrayal of an African American child and his family. Today, the power of "Tobe" lies as much in the questions it raises: Whose story gets told? Who gets to tell it? How do stories shape how we see ourselves and each other? This volume reproduces the original volume's text and images, places the book in the context of its time, and offers thought-provoking ways to read "Tobe" with fresh eyes. This new edition of a children's classic opens up questions of race, voice, and power in ways that encourage fruitful conversation and resist easy answers. Provided by publisher.
