In the 1920's and 30's, scholars, particularly from African American colleges and the Federal Writers' Project, began interviewing former slaves. Another group of scholars began voice recording their interviews. Remembering Slavery includes interviews with former slaves, as well as dramatic readings based on those interviews that were transcribed on paper. This CD enables us to hear how former slaves describe, in their own words, what it was like to be a slave, and to be free.
