Aunt Phebe, Uncle Tom and Others : Character Studies Among the Old Slaves of the South, Fifty Years After (Classic Reprint)
Excerpt from Aunt Phebe, Uncle Tom and Others: Character Studies Among the Old Slaves of the South, Fifty Years After In this book there is an effort to present as they have not: hitherto been presented, the conditions as they exist today on some of the typical plantations of the South. Former slaves have been sought out and pho tographed as they were found in and out of their cabin homes, and a little of the history of each of these inter esting and often pathetic figures has been given. In nearly all of them there is a glimpse of a surpassing human affection and loyalty - a something that gilds the meanness of attire, the humbleness of the home and the lack of mental vision. Surely, if these former slaves have missed something that the younger members of their race enjoy, they have graces that those born to freedom do not always show.
