The idea of interviewing slaves about their experiences dates to the 1760s, when abolitionists first began to publish slave narratives as a way to educate the public to the horrors of slavery. From 1929 to 1932, the social sciences department at Fisk University in Nashville, Tennessee, sponsored a project to gather more interviews.

Selected from the Federal Writers' Pro ject slave narratives, this first-hand ac count of slavery features interviews with 27 former South Carolina slaves who were at least ten years old when they were freed. It is a successor to Hurmence's My Folks Don't Want Me To Talk about Slav ery (1984).

In the 1930s, the Federal Writers' Project undertook a massive effort at gathering the oral testimony of former slaves. Those ex-slaves were in their declining years by the time of the Great Depression, but Elizabeth Sparks, Elige Davison, and others like them nonetheless provided a priceless record of life under the yoke: where slaves lived, how they were treated, what they ate, how they worked, how they adjusted to freedom.

Stories from actual enslaved persons. These are circa 1937-40 or so. They were taped in locations from Texas Louisiana, Kentucky, Virginia, etc. ---- all over the South. The people were in their 90's and above, and these are their actual memories. It is like looking into a history capsule. Fascinating! Some owners were good, some were very bad, but a well rounded group of interviews.

An interesting read of interviews with ex-slaves done around 1930. It is not as illuminating at "12 Years a Slave" or "Incidents in the Life of a Slave Girl" but has its place. I was surprised that most of the interviewees remembered their days as a slave with fondness. My theory is the slaves who suffered the abuse had already died, that bad memories tend to fade, and a hesitance to speak ill of the white man. The punch of some accounts is missing but "We Lived in a Cabin" is thought provoking in its own way. Recommended.

These collections of actual interviews with former Plantation Slaves are an invaluable insight into American History. Too many times, we are caught up in the "dramatization" of history that is provided in film and literature. Here are the actual words of those who lived through the Civil War as slaves, and how they actually felt. I recommend them highly to any and all middle and high school history teachers to have for their students.

This book has selections from the slave interviews, as written down by an interviewer. These are heartbreaking stories, but I'm glad to know the truth of it. I think its important to understand that it was not as portrayed in Gone With the Wind.
