Enslavement and Sharecropping in Florida

What are oral histories?

Oral histories are recorded interviews and transcriptions between an interviewer and one or more narrators. Together, narrators and interviewers create an historical record. Oral histories serve different purposes from documenting a personal narrative about a major historical event, to a recollection of the past, or a narrative of someone's life. The oral histories relevant to this guide document sharecropping and race relations.
