ISBN: 9780822232902

Between 1936 and 1938, the Federal Writers’ Project gathered over 2,300 interviews with former slaves. Pulitzer-winner Lynn Nottage has collected and condensed these interviews into a theatrical exploration of the history of slavery in the United States. By resurrecting these slaves’ stories onstage, Nottage resurrects the voices of people who for so many years had none, and she creates a space for the contemplation of the enduring effects of slavery in America.
