Om Remembering Slavery

"A Best Book of the Year" Library Journal and BooklistUsing excerpts from the thousands of interviews conducted with ex- slaves in the 1930s by researchers working with the Federal Writer's Project, this astonishing collection makes available in print the only known recordings of people who actually experienced slavery--recordings that had gathered dust in the Library of Congress until they were rendered audible for the first time specifically for this collection.Heralded as "a minor miracle" (Ted Koppel, Nightline), "powerful and intense" (Atlanta Journal Constitution), and "invaluable" (Chicago Tribune), Remembering Slavery is sure to enrich readers for years to come. "Gripping and poignant... Moving recollections fill a void in the slavery literature." The Washington Post Book World"Chilling and riveting... This project will enrich every American home and classroom." Publisher's Weekly"Quite literally, history comes alive in this unparalleled work." Library Journal"Ira Berlin's fifty-page introduction is as good a synthesis of current scholarship as one will find, filled with fresh insights for any reader." The San Diego Union Tribune
