Br’er Rabbit and crew are the basis and inspiration for Disney’s black folklore, controversial tale “Song of the South” and popular attraction Splash Mountain! 

 

Uncle Remus’ by Joel C. Harris defines many of the stereotypes of the African American people, including dialect and slavery themes. Harris himself said that ‘Uncle Remus’ was ‘a sympathetic supplement to Stowe’s wonderful defense of slavery as it existed in the South. [She] attacked the possibilities of slavery with all the eloquence of genius, but the same genius painted the portrait of the Southern slave-owner and defended him.’ (Bernstein, 2011).

 

This 1892 first edition of Harris’s third collection of Uncle Remus stories is complete with the well-known moralizing short stories and jolly songs illustrated with twelve plates, including a frontispiece, by popular illustrator and comics artist A. B. Frost!
