LAy My Burden Down

LAY MY BURDEN DOWN

A FOLK HISTORY OF SLAVERY

Edited by R A. Botkin

Foreword by Jerrold Hirsch

Lay My Burden Down preserves the voices of former slaves through some one hundred interviews that relate tall tales and legends, and recall lives in bondage, the war that freed them, and the long struggle for equality that began with Reconstruction.

"Here are people-old and wise-talking over their lives, the little incidents-sights and sounds, tastes and smells--and the larger recollections of the feeling of living in slavery, being sold at public auction." -Saturday Review
