The WPA Oklahoma Slave Narratives
T. Lindsay Baker, Julie Philips Baker
University of Oklahoma Press, 1996 - Social Science - 543 pages
These are fascinating stories of the memories of ex-slaves, fourteen of which have never been published before. Although many African Americans had relocated in Oklahoma after emancipation in1865, some of the interviewees had been slaves of Cherokees, Chickasaws, Choctaws, or Creeks in the Indian territory.
