AMERICAN SLAVERY: A COMPOSITE AUTOBIOGRAPHY gives researchers the only resource that preserves the stories of American slaves as told by the former slaves themselves. From 1936 to 1938, ex-slaves in the United States told, for the first time, stories of what it was like to be a slave in America and what life was like after freedom finally came. The narratives were collected under the auspices of the Work Projects Administration.
