As part of the Works Progress Administration, the Federal Writers' Project produced the Slave Narrative Collection; these were the memoirs of former slaves that detailed how they lived under the conditions of slavery in the antebellum south.
When I Was a Slave is an anthology of some of the most memorial, jarring, and moving testimonies collected by the Federal Writers’ Project’s Slave Narrative Collection. For anyone who wants to learn more about what the antebellum south was like through the eyes of various slaves, there's no better place to start. For those who wish to understand the American slave experience, When I Was A Slave should be required reading!
