This massive Pulitzer Prize winning tome tells the story of 4,000,000 slaves, the plantation masters, and their liberators in the last few years of slavery/emancipation in their own words. Much of the book is taken from articles and diaries written in the 1860's and interviews of 2000 ex-slaves conducted by a New Deal writers program conducted in the 1930's. This is stuff that the majority of today's white people would just as soon not know about, so they can go about believing in the mythology that today's America is based upon a history of racial equality.
