Overview

A groundbreaking book-and-audio set of interviews about African American life in the segregated South, now available on an MP3 audio CD.

Hailed as "viscerally powerful" (Publishers Weekly) and "a multimedia triumph" (Kansas City Star), Remembering Jim Crow is a searing story of survival enriched by vivid memories of individual, family, and community triumphs and tragedies.

This landmark in African American oral history is now available in an affordable paperback edition with a remastered MP3 CD of the companion radio documentary program produced by American RadioWorks.

Based on interviews collected by the Behind the Veil Project at Duke University's Center for Documentary Studies, this extraordinary book-and-CD set makes available for the first time the most extensive oral history ever recorded of African American life under segregation. In vivid, compelling accounts, men and women from all walks of life tell how their day-to-day activity was subjected to profound and unrelenting racial oppression. At the same time, Remembering Jim Crow is a testament to how black southerners fought back against the system, raising children, building churches and schools, running businesses, and struggling for respect in a society that denied them the most basic rights. This new edition of the original volume makes the recordings available for the first time in MP3 audio CDs.

The audio for this new edition is on MP3 compact discs. MP3 audio books on compact disc can be played on newer CD players that support MP3 technology and accept a standard-sized CD, on any personal computer that has Apple's iTunes, Microsoft's Media Player or similarsoftware, and on an iPod and other personal MP3 players.
