Not Your Standard John Henry Story
As a youngster, I thrilled each time I got to see the George Pal puppetoon rendering of the folk tale of John Henry . Although the religious concepts were not quite spot on, the moral concepts were on the mark.
But just minutes ago, I saw a new John Henry. A modern rendering emphasizing qualities of perseverance and hard work. But is it not entertaining? You better believe it is! Give it a shot. I'm sure you will feel the time was well spent.
It is presented from the perspective of an African American folktale, rather than simply a fictitious character. Enough. I know not many of you will see this, but I invite you: watch, the YouTube presentation of John Henry .
