Description

These are fascinating stories of the memories of ex-slaves, fourteen of which have never been published before. Although many African-Americans had relocated in Oklahoma after emancipation in 1865, some of the interviewees had been slaves of Cherokees, Chickasaws, Choctaws, or Creeks in the Indian territory.
