Where is Tobe? Unfolding Stories of Childhood, Race, and Rural Life in North Carolina.

Where is Tobe? Unfolding Stories of Childhood, Race, and Rural Life in North Carolina.

When the UNC Press published Tobe in 1939, the book broke ground as one of the first realistic portrayals of African American individuals and communities in children’s literature. Marking Tobe‘s 75th anniversary, this exhibition explores how this one book opens up to reveal stories within stories.
