This year, our Monday homeschool production class has devised a performance piece based on Tarheel tales from each of the three NC regions. From the Appalachians, we will present a known “Jack Tale” – Jack and the New Ground. We will share another folk tale The Magic Lute from the Currituck region of the Coastal Plains. Our third story is a true, or “found” tale from right here in the Piedmont. We have partnered with the Garner Area Homeschoolers to research and create a documentary project based on the Panther Branch/Juniper Level Rosenwald school of Garner, The Forgotten Foundation of Black Education. The performances are free to the public and will be presented:
April 1, 3:00 at the Southeast Regional Library, 908 7th Avenue
Garner, NC 27529
April 15, 2:00 at Daniels Auditorium at the NC Museum of History 5 E. Edenton St.
