Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

YA--The Oklahoma Slave Narrative Project was established as part of the WPA (Works Project Administration) from 1937-1939 to interview and collect narratives from former Texan slaves who had been relocated to Oklahoma. The 32 reminiscences presented here provide insight into the lives of the enslaved, including recollections of being sold away from parents, suffering harsh punishment by overseers, and living in misery. The selections also give valid information about daily life; e.g., medical care, religion, resistance to punishment, work routines, clothing, and housing. Black-and-white illustrations enhance the text. An important resource for history assignments.

Review

“ . . . what makes this monograph so exciting and fascinating is that the authors have provided commentary upon the genesis of the interviews, who conducted them along with their color, and the editing process from which they emerged.”--Barry A. Crouch
(Barry A. Crouch)

Format: Hardcover
I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book. It is very emotional and heartfelt. Each interview opened my eyes to the daily life and status of slaves. I found this book very insightful and recommend anyone who has the least bit of interest in history.
