Oral History (audio)

Oral history is vital to family history research. I found the cassette tape! Before my cousin passed away in 2008 at age 102, the late Robert Danner of Memphis, TN shared a lot of history with me. I was able to record one of my interviews with him in 2005. He was a WALKING HISTORY BOOK. His accounts were not only of genealogical value to my family, but it is of historical value for African-American history. I am thrilled to be able to share his recorded oral history with the world. He shared vivid recollections about his grandmother and her stories about slavery, as well as the sharecropping system, Black soldiers in the Civil War, miscegenation, etc. that gives folk a glimpse of life for African Americans during slavery and shortly afterwards.
