Voices From Slavery: 100 Authentic Slave Narrtives

Item#: 236523




Though slavery was still a raw wound on the American psyche in the early twentieth century, the Works Progress Administration set out to interview 100 former slaves in 1930, seeking to capture their stories and experiences for posterity.

This compilation of those stories - many of which are blunt and horrific -  serves as a stark reminder of America's early days, in which humans enslaved other humans. Add this collection to your book shelf for a unique and important perspective on slavery in America.
