The meat of this site -- just one small eddy in the sprawling (and
fascinating) American Studies web complex -- is 13 Depression-era
narratives about slave life, gathered from former slaves as part
of a Works Projects Administration oral history project. The site,
designed by Bruce Fort, who recently completed his Ph.D. in History
at U.Va., also includes photos of the former slaves and audio links
to selected excerpts of the WPA tapes.
