A Greek God In Harlem
Out of Ancient Greece comes the story of Perseus and Andromeda- the son of Zeus and a beautiful Ethiopian princess. Like knights of every fairytale, he rescues her from a menacing sea serpent and through their union the Persians are borne.
Amongst the mortals of modern New York, Tanya Whitford teaches Greek mythology to the Black and Brown students in a Harlem high school. In a fantastical twist of events, this African American scholar gets a firsthand lesson on gods and goddesses, when the handsome Perseus comes to life and he believes her to be his lost Andromeda!
