Summary

Now in paperback, the book component of the award-winning set of interviews with former slaves. The extraordinary interviews from the book component of Remembering Slavery are now available in an affordable paperback edition. When the original book-and-tape set of Remembering Slavery was first published, it attracted not only rave endorsements and selection by the History Book Club, but also commercial attention seldom accorded projects of this nature. In prime-time television and radio shows, newspapers, and magazine features, this unique set of firsthand recollections of slavery has been heralded as "a stunning work," "powerful and intense," and "an invaluable resource." The set was also named a Best Book of the Year by Library Journal and Booklist. Along with transcribed interviews, the book includes Ira Berlin's "seminal" (Library Journal) introductory essay on the evolution of slavery over the centuries and commentary by Robin D. G. Kelley and Librarian of Congress James Billington.
