Item Description...
A republication of an anthology of first-person histories about the experiences of slavery is complemented by re-mastered compact discs in MP3 format containing its researchers' extensive original live recordings. Reprint.

Publishers Description
The groundbreaking book-and-audio set is available with MP3 audio cds: "powerful and intense" ("Atlanta Journal-Constitution") and "a minor miracle" (Ted Koppel, "Nightline").
In 1998, The New Press published "Remembering Slavery," a book-and-tape set that offered a startling first-person history of slavery. Using excerpts from the thousands of interviews conducted with ex-slaves in the 1930s by researchers working with the Federal Writers' Project, the astonishing audiotapes made available the only known recordings of people who actually experienced enslavement--recordings that had gathered dust in the Library of Congress until they were rendered audible for the first time specifically for this set.
"Remembering Slavery" received the kind of commercial attention seldom accorded projects of this nature--nationwide critical and review coverage as well as extensive coverage on prime-time television, including "Good Morning America, Nightline, CBS Sunday Morning," and CNN. The tapes have been aired repeatedly on public radio stations across the country. Reviewers called the set "chilling . . . and] riveting" ("Publishers Weekly") and "something, truly, truly new" ("The Village Voice"). Now this groundbreaking set is available for a new generation of readers and listeners, offering remastered compact discs in MP3 format of the extensive original live recordings of interviews with former slaves.
The audio for this new edition is on MP3 compact discs. MP3 audio books on compact disc can be played on newer CD players that support MP3 technology and accept a standard-sized CD, and on any personal computer that has Apple's iTunes, Microsoft's Media Player or similar software.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
A Wealth of Knowledge  Jan 18, 2008
This book and CD are a wealth of knowledge. As a person of African descent, hearing how these persons were treated in a county supposedly for freedom and equality, not only was a horrified but very angry.
I will NEVER forgive this coutry for the ill treatment and hardship that racism and bigotry ahs and still is causing.
Must Have, Must Read, Must Listen  Feb 3, 2007
This is a must have, must read, must hear book. With the sixty-nine minute recording of the actual slave interviews from the 1930s, we have the only known recording of the actual voices of actual slaves telling their story. Hearing their voices is like being tele-ported back in time. The book itself also examines those same interviews, primarily through "Weevils in the Wheat: Interviews with Virginia Ex-Slaves."

Teachers and speakers will want their students and audiences to hear these voices. They give voice to the voiceless and bring alive these heroic survivors.

Reviewer: Bob Kellemen, Ph.D., is the author of Beyond the Suffering: Embracing the Legacy of African American Soul Care and Spiritual Direction , Spiritual Friends, and Soul Physicians.
Extremely Interesting but sometimes a Tearjerker!  Dec 22, 2002
For several years I've been reading powerful thought-provoking slave narratives. This is probably the most moving due to accompanying tapes of slaves discussing their thoughts and conditions when they were slaves. This book and tapes should be used in every high school American and World history classes. I recommend this book to everyone above the age of twelve. If you want to begin educating your children earlier about American history, specifically slavery have them read K.J. McWilliams books; The Journal of Darien Duff, an Emancipated Slave, The Diary of a Slave Girl, Ruby Jo, and The Journal of Leroy Jones, a Fugitive Slave. They are based on slave narratives such as this one and include many interesting photos as well as additional information.
Powerful and Enlightening  Aug 30, 2002
I am currently a high school student that read part of this for a Civil War class and let me say this is one powerful book. With people who were the slaves themselves tell you their stories, you learn alot about the antebellum period. I would recommend this book for any mature person due to the fact that some of these stories show the true horror of slavery.
Very Powerful&Painful  Feb 29, 2000
this is a Must for all to have.The Books&tapes show the RawNess and Emotions of Americas Worst NightMare that still Haunts Her.the Voices run Deep down your skin.until SLavery is Properly Discussed and Dealt with America will continue to be a Land of The Unknown.a Must Have Book.
