Project Description: I think Brer Rabbit Day would be a day where you pick an obstacle and systematically demolish it. Not something little, something that seems impossible -like the moment Brer Rabbit gets caught in the Tar Baby and he’s about to get eaten. Something you think you can’t overcome. On Brer Rabbit Day, I would sit down together with my family, pick something that seems impossible, analyze it and come up with a plan to break it down, bit by bit. Then we’d make it happen. If plan A didn’t work, we’d make a plan B. it might take awhile, but we wouldn’t stop until the obstacle was demolished.
|This project was inspired by the story of Brer Rabbit and the Tar Baby. Watch Virgina Hamilton’s version here
