Joel Chandler Harris was an author and journalist in Georgia. Coming from an impoverished background, he was mentored by publisher Joseph Addison Turner and studied to be a journalist. While working for the Atlanta Constitution, he began publishing his signature pieces, the tales of the freed slave Uncle Remus, inspired by hours spent listening to slaves at Turner's plantation. These famous stories are a cross between folklore and fables, and combine humor, genuine African-American dialect, and gentle morality.
