Slave Narratives

Posted by Annie Massa-MacLeod on October 22, 2000 at 12:46:33:

I just finished reading the slave narratives that Prof. Gabriel provided a link to. I thought that they were incredibly interesting, especially the way the interviewer would write down the slave dialect, and the occasionally superior tone that the interviewers would use to describe a former slave. What I found shocking - among many other things - is that most of these slaves mentioned only wearing a shirt for a large part of their life. Of course, this was not the most brutal of what their masters subjected them to, but it was not something I had thought of previously, which made an impression.
