The view that slavery could best be described by those who had themselves experienced it personally has found expression in several thousand commentaries, autobiographies, narratives, and interviews with those who "endured." Although most of these accounts appeared before the Civil War, more than one-third are the result of the ambitious efforts of the Federal Writers' Project of the Works Progress Administration (WPA) to interview surviving ex-slaves during the 1930s. The result of these efforts was the Slave Narrative Collection, a group of autobiographical accounts of former slaves that today stands as one of the most enduring and noteworthy achievements of the WPA. Compiled in seventeen states during the years 1936-38, the collection consists of more than two thousand interviews with former slaves, most of them first-person accounts of slave life and the respondents' own reactions to bondage. The interviews afforded aged ex-slaves an unparalleled opportunity to give their personal accounts of life under the "peculiar institution," to describe in their own words what it felt like to be a slave in the United States.―Norman R. Yetman, American Memory, Library of CongressThis paperback edition of selected Florida narratives is reprinted in facsimile from the typewritten pages of the interviewers, just as they were originally typed.

I enjoyed the historical perspective that this book gives, but it's essentially photocopies of the typewritten original pages, which at times are difficult to read. A book set in modern type would have been more enjoyable and informative to read.

Highly recommend. These should be used as teaching tools for schools. Shows reality. I chose Florida and Virginia because some of the interviewers were also black, so many of the conversations were more candid.

I love this book, can't put it down. I highly recommend this to anyone who wants 1st hand knowledge from the slave's perspective of what it was like to be enslaved . I live in Jacksonville Florida and some of the locations where the interviews were conducted are close to my area, only everything has been reconstructed but the street names are the same-this is awesome!
