Slave Narratives

Last month I posted several songs that originate from the period immediately after the slaves were freed in the US.  They came from a study of Slave Narratives that the US government did in the 1930’s, some of which are posted on Project Gutenberg. Recently Linda Austin wrote about what she read of the Slave Narratives on her blog Cherry Blossom Memories.  Linda gives an interesting summary of some of the Narratives from Arkansas.
