Slave Narratives Now in AAHGS News

The slave narratives recorded by writers with the Works Progress Administration (WPA) in the 1930s provide incredible insight into the interviewees’ lives in slavery and freedom.

Starting with the September/October 2009 issue of AAHGS News available to members of AAHGS or by ordering single issues from the website at www.aahgs.org, this new feature further expands that documentation by sharing stories about the lives of former slaves and their descendants in freedom.

The September/October 2009 issue features the exciting accomplishments of the Toles family of Columbus, Georgia,  just one generation after slavery.
