Hello all. I have been looking for authentic pre-1960s African tales and there have been roadblocks. Typically the stories are written by European or Middle Eastern sources. I've read about Ge'ez romances but have not actually come across the tales themselves. Could anyone point me in the right direction?

I am looking for participants in a study to share their experiences as former African American males served as ED/EBD/BD in the southeast. Participants ages 18-35 will be interviewed and given the opportunity to express their thoughts, feelings and impressions of their school years. If interested or for more information please contact me directly. Thanks, Cheryl

Thank you for the welcome. I have a question. I am a doctorate student in need of participants for my study. Is it allowable to post a request for study participants. If so, this is the post that would be uploaded:
