    The WPA narratives are a must for anyone studying slavery. The Arkansas narratives are of particular interest given that folk emigrated from all over the south. The narratives also deal with the after-the-war atrocity known as the Ku Klux.

    good stuff For students of African American history and culture in Arkansas this collection of slave memories is invaluable. They should be used with caution however as most of those interviewed were very young in the waning years of the slave era

    This is part of a series of interviews the United States government (under the WPA) conducted with former slaves in Arkansas during The Great Depression. It’s interesting to read the former slaves’ recollections and events they experienced or overhead during the slave years, and their general thoughts on the current world and society. Many, but not all, of the interviews were transcribed in dialect, so reading them is all the more special. It continues to fascinate me how many of them speak about This is part of a series of interviews the United States government (under the WPA) conducted with former slaves in Arkansas during The Great Depression. It’s interesting to read the former slaves’ recollections and events they experienced or overhead during the slave years, and their general thoughts on the current world and society. Many, but not all, of the interviews were transcribed in dialect, so reading them is all the more special. It continues to fascinate me how many of them speak about how the youngsters of their current day don’t appreciate what they have and that they are generally “lazy” (Some thoughts and comments such as these just don’t change over the centuries, do they?), and that they had a better life under slavery since they had every need securely supplied on the plantation. The contemporary black and white photographs add greatly to this work of valuable history and research. {A}
