1881 1st ed Uncle Remus Harris Slavery Song of South Brer Rabbit

Br’er Rabbit and crew are the basis and inspiration for Disney’s black folklore, controversial tale “Song of the South” and popular attraction Splash Mountain!

‘Uncle Remus’ by Joel C. Harris defines many of the stereotypes of the African-American people, including dialect and slavery themes. Harris himself said that ‘Uncle Remus’ was

“a sympathetic supplement to Stowe’s wonderful defense of slavery as it existed in the South. [She] attacked the possibilities of slavery with all the eloquence of genius, but the same genius painted the portrait of the Southern slave-owner, and defended him.” (Bernstein, 2011).
