Stunning pictures of men and women who were born into slavery and photographed more than seventy years after being freed

This woman is one of the last faces of slavery. In the 1920s and 1930s, an interest in slave narratives was rekindled, and as part of the Federal Writers’ Project of the Work Progress Administration, more than 2,000 first-person accounts of slavery were collected, as well as 500 black and white photographs. Most were in their 80s and 90s.

Converted bakery trucks are fine, a restored International Harverster Metro would be neat, but how about Appalachian mountain riders as your bookmobile service? As a feature of the Works Progress Administration (WPA) of the 1930′s that was the case.
