When I Was a Slave: Memoirs from the Slave Narrative Collection
More than 2,000 interviews with former slaves, who, in blunt, simple language, provide often-startling first-person accounts of their lives in bondage. Includes some of the most detailed, compelling, and engrossing life histories in the Slave Narrative Collection, a project funded by the U.S. Government. An illuminating source of information that not only tells about life in the South before, during, and after the Civil War but also preserves the opinions and perspectives of those who were enslaved.
