When I Was a Slave [PDF]

by Norman R. Yetman
I didn't even now such a collection existed when I found this book at the MLK, Jr. memorial in Atlanta.

This book is an excellent read for anyone interested in the subject of slavery.Almost every one of the entries starts off with, "I was owned by......"

This book is a collection of first-person slave narratives.Each entry is complete and unedited.Each person interviewed was born a slave and then was freed through emancipation.

The interviews were conducted during the Great Depression as a project of the WPA.The living, once former slaves were 88 to well over 100 years of age when interviewed in person.The words are written in their dialect.

I highly recommend the book.
