Claymation: Timeless Stories - God's Trombones
"The Creation" is the first in this trilogy of African-American poetry. It is an artistic rather than a literal interpretation of the Genesis story of creation. It is a reminder of our responsibility to leave planet earth as good or better than we found it. After all, we only have it on loan from the next generation. Another poem is "The Prodigal Son" which is a reminder that forgiveness is always in season. Author: James Weldon Johnson (USA); Narrator: James Earl Jones (voice of Star Wars' Darth Vader); Academy Award Nomination for Short Subject Animation.
