The Knee-High Man: An African American Fable

Description

The Knee-High Man: An African American Fable takes audiences south to the Okefenokee Swamp, where a man named Billy is ashamed when he discovers he is only knee-high to a man and runs away from home. When Billy gets lost in the swamp and has to use his brain to survive, he learns that his height is not a measure of his worth.
