American Slavery: A Composite Autobiography (2003-09-02)

Between 1936 and 1938, the WPA Federal Writers' Project hired field workers to collect the life histories of former slaves. Transcripts for 2,000 interviews, from seventeen states, were then compiled by the Library of Congress. This is an electronic database of that compilation. Provided by Greenwood Electronic Media. We hosted this database and provided online subscription access to it for over 3 years.
