All Around Town Learning Activity | Storytime with SCETV

This learning activity can be used with the children's book, All Around Town: The Photographs of Richard Samuels Roberts by Dinah Johnson

This special picture book offers a window into the African American community of Columbia, South Carolina, during the early twentieth century. While the town is specific, the themes and photographs are universal--weddings and funerals, teachers and preachers, sassy cars and baseball teams, and, of course, families of all sizes. More than half a century later, Richard Samuel Roberts's photographs and Dinah Johnson's lyrical text come together to illustrate the pride, joy, and strength of a bustling community.
