This is a list of formerly enslaved persons who were interviewed for the source listed at the bottom of the page. The second source contains a link to portraits that were taken at the time of the interviews. If they do not already have profiles, they will need to be created. The US Black Heritage Project asks that the African-American Sticker be applied below the biography header to each profile that you create.

African-American Project
... ... ... is part of African-American history.
{{African-American Sticker}}

Between 1936 and 1938 approximately 2,300 former slaves were interviewed as part of the Federal Writer's Project of the Works Progress Administration (WPA). The results are presented in narrative form, most, allegedly, in the first person, and made available by the Library of Congress. Please be aware that this project took place in the Jim Crow Era and some scholars believe that the narratives themselves may be, in part, adulterated. You may find that in the narratives many of the freedmen actually have praise for the institution of slavery and/or their slave holders. The vernacular in which the narratives are written can be cringe inducing and are most certainly contrived. Just keep in mind the times in which these men and women lived. Their value is that many of the narratives include names of relatives and slave holders, dates, places, and other information with which to create a basic profile.

This list is divided by states. Below each state heading is a link to the digital images. The chart provides the name of each person (sometimes a couple) interviewed, a place to enter their WikiTree ID, and whether or not they are connected to the main WikiTree. At the bottom of the page is the source citation. Adding the Volume and page number is also helpful.

What a great project this is. A big thank-you to Lucy, Gene, Carolyn, K., and every other WikiTreer contributing to it.

Everyone represented in the Federal Writers Project 1936-1938 for Indiana for surnames Arnold through Lewis now has profiles linked to from here. (This is what the book in the Indiana State Museum gift shop covered; the book says it also included surname Locke, but not so! Thomas Lewis is the final entry.)

Where possible, I've identified the people who enslaved the people in the profiles I've worked on for Indiana. Would it be worthwhile to include a column here of the surname(s) of the people who enslaved the people profiled here?
posted by K Raymoure
Sounds like a good idea to me. Many of them had more than one enslaver, and were even enslaved in different states. I think it would help people searching for their ancestors.
I'll give it a spin on Indiana and see what everyone thinks :)

Hi, Lucy. I posted this a few days ago on our Google group, but Emma asked me to post it here to make sure you saw it:

I would like to suggest we add a fourth column to the charts on the Freedman Narratives free space page so we can add the state(s) in which the person was enslaved. I am finding that a lot of the people interviewed in one state were actually enslaved in another. I have done a lot of the Texas people interviewed, but most were enslaved elsewhere then later moved to Texas after emancipation. Some were enslaved in another state then also enslaved in Texas. I think it would be helpful to list the actual state or states they were enslaved in an additional column. Someone trying to locate an ancestor that they knew was enslaved in Alabama, might not find them in the Alabama state charts, because they were interviewed in Texas, for example.

While adding entries in Indiana, I'm thinking since we have the alphabetical sorting option with the dynamic tables, maybe we place State before County when including both? I'll do that for a few Indiana ones so we can evaluate.
