This is an incredibly good read. I cannot recommend it enough. It is all the direct memories of ex-slaves. There is not alot of academic comment. They allow these people to tell their own stories. And I think these are stories that need to be heard. Utterly fascinating.

Quick read. I wish it were longer!
It is a great reminder of how recently slavery was abolished.
Great book for any age.

Descriptions of slavery by the people who experienced it from slave narratives in the Library of Congress collected by the Federal Writers' Project during the 1930s. The joys and sorrows, hopes and dreams of enslaved people in the land of the free. Fascinating quick read.
