Another Slave Narrative

Vision Statement

Gus Askew

In 1936-1938, writers of the Federal Writers' Project interviewed 2,300 ex-slaves to document “slave” life using the very words of the men and women who endured American slavery.  

Through the innovative vision of Michelle R. Jackson, series creator and director, 7 ex-slaves’ interviews are brought to new life with the dynamic and multiracial cast of Another Slave Narrative. 

To ensure that the personal narratives of these amazing men and women are never forgotten, it is Michelle’s vision to bring each of 2,300 interviews to new life with actors and filmmakers all over the world.
