The Anansi stories are African heritage predating the trauma of slavery.  These humorous, lively and “community” led stories travelled with enslaved African people to the Caribbean. The stories then came to the UK when the UK government asked the Windrush Generation to come here to help with the labour shortage after WWII.  The Stories are part of our multicultural British heritage and have a universal appeal.
