Don't read another Slave Narrative - Wed Chat
Do not read another 'Slave Narrative'; I mean it; until you have heard what Afrigeneas.com Family member CAK has to say about them.
CAK has spent considerable time reading, studying, and figuring out the historical data contained in the 'Narratives'.
So much of our African American history is to be found in the 'Narratives'. I've made the mistake, early on, of only searching for my direct Ancestors and ignoring the rest. Big mistake. I risked missing an opportunity to learn more about our Ancestors and history, what they did and how they coped.
CAK will give us pointers on how to approach these records.
Join us on Wednesday 10/24/01 at [9:00pm eastern/6:00pm pacific] to explore the genealogical treasures that are hidden in our 'Slave Narratives'. See you there!
