The 58 selections in this volume cover the history of slavery in
America, moving from memories of growing up in Africa to the trials
of the Middle Passage, the horrors of the auction block, the
sustaining forces of family and religions, acts of resistance, and
the meaning of the Civil War and emancipation, presenting 300 years
in the collective life cycle of an enslaved people.
Mintz's extensive introduction is followed by substantial
excerpts from published slave narratives, interviews with former
slaves, and letters written by enslaved African Americans. The end
of the volume includes a bibliographic essay and a 40-page
bibliography, making this an indispensible book for the study of
