Anansi the Spider: A West African God
“Stories about a spider-god, Anansi or Ananse, were first told in Ghana by the Ashanti people. They were not written down but recounted from generation to generation.“
We love the Anansi books because these stories have the power to bring people together from all over the world. Anansi’s stories would become popular through the African diaspora all over the Caribbean and southern Americas.
