Virginia Film Festival 2018: Another Slave Narrative

Sean McCord and Michelle Jackson

As part of President Roosevelt’s New Deal in 1936-1938, the Federal Writers’ Project interviewed more than 2,300 former slaves to gain first-hand accounts of slave life. Featuring a multiracial cast, Another Slave Narrative showcases performances of the original transcripts of these federal interviews in the former slaves’ own words.

The 2018 Virginia Film Festival runs November 1-4, 2018.
