FRANK GILL & JIM GILLIARD ALABAMA SLAVE NARRATIVES "REPARATIONS"
"Den de Ol' Marster had to find clothes an' shoes for us, but now us has to scuffle an' git dem de bes' way us can."
Days of Reconstruction were no better for the freed ancestor than the enslaved ancestor. I continue my personal journey through the recollections of our enslaved ancestors recorded during the Federal Writer's Project, Alabama Slave Narratives. REPARATIONS!
