I don't know what to think about this recording and I am interested to see your comments. Johnson sounds like he liked Jefferson Davis as a "master." I this because its the only life Johnson knew? Because he was born a slave and believed he was less than whites? I don't know. I wasn't there with him, but the scars will not heal until we have that conversation, as a nation. A side note: Ben Montgomery, mentioned in this recording did try to run away a few times, even though he was treated "well" by Davis. If you have insight on this recording, please let me know. (original recordings at the Library of Congress) * * if your comment does not show, it is youtube blocking it, not me. #jeffersondavis #confederacy #blackhistorymonth
