New Press, The, Feb 24, 2015 - History - 416 pages
When it was first published fifteen years ago, this startling—and bestselling—first-person history of slavery was heralded as "powerful and intense" (Atlanta Journal Constitution) and "invaluable" (Chicago Tribune). Drawing from the thousands of interviews conducted with ex-slaves in the 1930s by researchers working with the Federal Writers' Project, this astonishing collection makes available the only known recordings of people who lived through the enormity of slavery. The groundbreaking interviews with former slaves collected in the original book-and-audio set of Remembering Slavery are now available for a new generation of readers and listeners in both affordable paperback and enhanced audio e-book.
