Bruh Beaver, Bruh Rabbit and the Man in the Moon is a trickster tale with origins in African American culture. The trickster tales feature a clever and devious animal whose pranks usually cause trouble for another character. The animal tales can be traced back to the trickster tales in Africa. The storytelling traditions in African trickster tales usually feature animals like the Tortoise, Anasi the Spider and the Hare. These tricksters usually outwitted other larger animals. When Africans were brought to the Americas as slaves, the animals in these stories were adapted to feature animals that the slaves saw in the United States and in the Caribbean. Bruh Rabbit is the consummate trickster in African American folklore that uses his wits to overcome troublesome circumstances, usually of his own making. Joel Chandler Harris popularized the animal tales by publishing “Uncle Remus: His Songs and His Sayings,” in the late 1880s. Bruh Beaver, Bruh Rabbit and the Man in the Moon, is one of many tales told in our family throughout the years.
