Narrated by Denzel Washington, Morgan Freeman, Danny Glover, and Whoopi Goldberg with music by B.B. King, Taj Mahal, Ladysmith Black Mambazo, and Herbie Hancock, this collection of larger-than-life tales includes the titular story about an African American hero who was born with a hammer in his hand.

And, in an exciting contest that pits man against machine, he single-handedly out-performs a new-fangled steam drill. This rousing tale delivers an inspirational message about pride and perseverance.
