Listen to the voices of ex-slaves telling of their lives in bondage, men like Fountain Hughes on the living conditions of slaves in Virginia in the 1860s when he was a teenager. Women like Laura Smalley describing the makeshift church where slaves worshipped on a plantation in Texas. Or Harriet Smith remembering what she saw as a small girl during the final days of the civil war. These recorded memories were among thousands of interviews done with ex-slaves in the 1930s and '40s. The majority were written interviews published in pamphlets and books. A handful were recorded on the latest equipment of the day - a 200 pound portable recorder. Now with modern technology, these audio interviews have been digitized. In this special edition of Nightline, listen to some of the actual voices of men and women, Americans, who were born in slavery.This product is manufactured on demand using DVD-R recordable media.
