Overview


By the early 1900s, virtually all of the rich plantation land in the Red Hills between Thomasville, Georgia, and Tallahassee, Florida, had been converted to quail-hunting land for the pleasure of Northern owners and their guests. To operate these large specialized plantations, a skilled management and talented and industrious work force was needed. Within these pages are the stories of fifteen African Americans who were closely involved in plantation life in the first half of the century. Explored are the unique relationships between the plantation owners and their employees, and between families black and white. Vintage images depict the various tasks performed by the African Americans on the plantation, as well as the recreational activities they enjoyed. Told in the voices of those who lived and worked on the plantations, this unique collection of oral histories will serve as a valuable educational tool for generations to come.

    Excellent History and My Views

    Having close ties with Pebble Hill Plantation, I feel that Jack Hadley and Titus Brown put together a book that clears the minds of many who have never experienced life on a southern plantation. I have worked there as a youngster along with my father, King Dennis Hadley (which you probably saw a photo of him in the book). Having coming along further in the life of the book, my visions are still clear of the enjoyment of experiencing the beautiful sceneries, 20th of May Celebrations, the 'Christmas Tree' fellowship with plantation employees and the plantation owner Mrs. Parker Poe, the family friendship of the employees. Great work on Brother James 'Jack' Hadley and his Black History Memorabilia for the variety of selections of photos, interviews and research that led to the publication of this fine book! Good Luck, Jack and Titus! You have inspired me in my desktop publishing to continue the work on my Family 'Cook Book.'!
