The slave narratives

 The slave narratives were part of a New Deal initiative called the Federal Writers Project. Writers would interview former slaves and would record their conversations for history’s sake. Students will read on of the slave narratives of their choice from this link: https://www.loc.gov/collections/slave-narratives-from-the-federal-writers-project-1936-to-1938/about-this-collection/ Students will cite which one and give a link to the actual document in their response. Students will then summarize the experience of the person whom they read about in 300-500 words.
