The Dark-Thirty : Southern Tales of the Supernatural

Pat McKissack and J. Brian Pinkney
New York: Knopf
Special Collections and University Archives

This collection of supernatural tales are drawn from African American history and range in setting from the civil war to the early 1960s.  Designed to be read during the dark-thirty – the last thirty minutes of twilight – these original scare tales are both suspenseful and haunting.
