Voices from the Days of Slavery from the Library of Congress

Voices from the Days of Slavery—from the Library of Congress,—is a great resource for students and researchers of African Diaspora history. This digital collection contains almost seven hours of interviews recorded between 1932 and 1975 in nine Southern states. Twenty-three interviewees, born between 1823 and the early 1860’s, discuss how they felt about slavery, slaveholders, coercion of slaves, their families, and freedom.
