Derived from slave narratives transcribed by the Federal Writers' Project in the 1930's, three characters share their dramatic accounts of slave life, their food and eating habits, clothing, religious and superstitious beliefs, music, plus those experiences specific to "the peculiar institution;" runaways, whippings, and the auction block. The spiritual resources of these oppressed people pulsate through the account. The human spirit triumphs.
