Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Musaicum Books presents to you this meticulously collection of hundreds of life stories, recorded interviews and incredible vivid testimonies of former slaves from the American southern states, including photos of the people being interviewed and their extraordinary narratives. After the end of Civil War in 1865, more than four million slaves were set free. There were several efforts to record the remembrances of the former slaves. The Federal Writers' Project was one such project by the United States federal government to support writers during the Great Depression by asking them to interview and record the myriad stories and experiences of slavery of former slaves. The resulting collection preserved hundreds of life stories from 17 U.S. states that would otherwise have been lost in din of modernity and America's eagerness to deliberately forget the blot on its recent past.

Download or read book Slave Testimony written by John W. Blassingame and published by LSU Press. This book was released on 1977-06-01 with total page 844 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: “A magisterial and landmark work, one that merits wide and thoughtful readership not only by historians, but, more important, by those of us who count on historians to tell us truly about our past.”—New York Times “A testament to the resilience of the black spirit, faced with a primitive and largely conscienceless regime.”—Bertram Wyatt-Brown, South Atlantic Quarterly “This volume does much more than merely present a rich collection of judiciously selected and skillfully edited sources of the history of slavery; in the process it reveals a host of large-as-life slaves and ex-slaves: Kale, the precocious eleven-year-old Mende of the Amistad rebels, who quickly learned to write eloquent and polished English; Harry McMillan of Beaufort, South Carolina, who talked frankly of black love and marriage; Charlotte Burris of Kentucky, so ‘afflicted’ that her husband was permitted to buy her for only $25.00—‘as much as I was worth,’ she self-effacingly said; and many more. This illumination of the slave as an individual is really what the book is all about.”—Journal of Southern History “A mammoth presentation of two centuries of slave recollections . . . extraordinary firsthand narratives that should become the premier reference volume on the slave experience for years to come.”—Columbia (SC) State “The largest collection of annotated and authenticated accounts of slaves ever published in one volume. . . . So valuable a compilation is this study that its real worth cannot be measured for some time to come.”—Richmond News Leader

This book was released on 2012-04 with total page 124 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: This work is an analysis of the fictional testimonies of some of Fred D Aguiar s outstanding novel protagonists who experienced the dreadful ordeal of the slave trade and who have undertaken to share the burden of recall. All the protagonists, whites, blacks, oppressors, and the subaltern convey their stories to the readers under the form of written accounts in prose, of poems, of thoughts, and of memories. I strive here to dissect the different traumata these characters have gone through and see which impact these have had on their identities, on the way they try to understand and fit into a world that often refuses to listen to their stories, and first and foremost on their narratives. For this purpose, and in a context where many accounts written by slaves are missing, my book backs up and highlights the similarities between fictional and non-fictional testimonial writings. As a response to these stories that went unrecorded, D Aguiar stipulates that contemporary literature about slavery can be regarded as a form of recuperation of these testimonies - History as roots for fiction, fiction as roots for History.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: "The lives of the six principal characters encountered in this volume--five women and one man--collectively extend from the mid nineteenth to the mid twentieth century. What is most revealing is the evidence of consciousness and changing circumstances in the decades before World War I as these people went from slavery to some sort of freedom. This alternation was not necessarily by a formal act of emancipation, but all the focus characters finally belonged to or were sheltered in a Christian community with a strong antislavery ideology and the capacity to provide a base for social reconstruction."--Page 4 of cover.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Helen Thomas' study opens a new avenue for Romanticism by exploring connections with literature produced by slaves, slave owners, abolitionists and radical dissenters between 1770 and 1830. In the first major attempt to relate canonical Romantic texts to writings of the African diaspora, she investigates English literary Romanticism in the context of a transatlantic culture, and African culture in the context of eighteenth-century Britain. In so doing, she reveals an intertextual dialogue between two diverse yet equally rich cultural spheres, and their corresponding systems of thought, epistemology and expression.

Download or read book Impossible Witnesses written by Dwight McBride and published by NYU Press. This book was released on 2002-02-01 with total page 207 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Even the most cursory review of black literary production during the nineteenth century indicates that its primary concerns were the issues of slavery, racial subjugation, abolitionist politics and liberation. How did the writers of these narratives "bear witness" to the experiences they describe? At a time when a hegemonic discourse on these subjects already existed, what did it mean to "tell the truth" about slavery? Impossible Witnesses explores these questions through a study of fiction, poetry, essays, and slave narratives from the abolitionist era. Linking the racialized discourses of slavery and Romanticism, it boldly calls for a reconfiguration of U.S. and British Romanticism that places slavery at its center. Impossible Witnesses addresses some of the major literary figures and representations of slavery in light of discourses on natural rights and law, offers an account of Foucauldian discourse analysis as it applies to the problem of "bearing witness," and analyzes specific narratives such as "Narrative of the Life of Frederick Douglass," and "The Interesting Narrative of the Life of Olaudah Equiano." A work of great depth and originality, Impossible Witnesses renders traditional interpretations of Romanticism impossible and places Dwight A. McBride at the forefront of studies in race and literature.
