Fountain Hughes is one of the best recordings from the WPA project, which was later called the "Slave Narratives" held in the Library of Congress. Here, he recounts when he went to church as a boy during slavery. You can feel home reliving the experience, through his words. For many slaves, church was the only light towards the end of the tunnel. #blackhistorymonth #blackchurch #slavesongs #1800s
