An African American storyteller will help Las Virgenes Library celebrate Black History Month on Tuesday. Binnie Tate Wilkin, dressed in African costume, will present African and African American folklore through word and dance. Wilkin, the author of "Survival Themes in Fiction for Children and Young People," a collection of short stories to help children deal with everyday problems, will spin tales of hardship faced by African Americans and their eventual triumph.
