    Great reading! This book, and the series of books is a great insight into our historical past. There is nothing greater than a first-hand account of history. These books really bring the history alive. I can almost hear the voices leap off the pages.

    This is part of a series of interviews the United States government (under the WPA) conducted with former slaves in South Carolina during The Great Depression. It’s interesting to read the former slaves’ recollections and events they experienced or overhead during the slave years, and their general thoughts on the current world and society. Many, but not all, of the interviews were transcribed in dialect, so reading them is all the more special. It continues to fascinate me how many of them speak This is part of a series of interviews the United States government (under the WPA) conducted with former slaves in South Carolina during The Great Depression. It’s interesting to read the former slaves’ recollections and events they experienced or overhead during the slave years, and their general thoughts on the current world and society. Many, but not all, of the interviews were transcribed in dialect, so reading them is all the more special. It continues to fascinate me how many of them speak about how the youngsters of their current day don’t appreciate what they have and that they are generally “lazy” (Some thoughts and comments such as these just don’t change over the centuries, do they?), and that they had a better life under slavery since they had every need securely supplied on the plantation. The contemporary black and white photographs add greatly to this work of valuable history and research. {A}
