The voices of former slaves ring out in this unforgettable portrait of American history, taken from the WPA's Slave Narratives by award-winning author Belinda Hurmence.You'll meet twelve slaves, men and women from mansions and plantations, tobacco and cotton groves. You'll share their memories of good times and hardships, of births, weddings and funerals, games and duties in the master's house, and finally the "surrender" that set them all free. Above all, you'll hear the voices of true storytellers who afford us a glimpse of our inescapable past, revealing aspects of slavery rarely seen. View more info
