OUTSIDE THE BOX:
Those interested in learning more about American history and the history of slavery in the U.S. might want to spend time with the Library of Congress's Slave Narratives, a digitized archive of photos and oral histories from people who had been enslaved. During the Depression, the Federal Writers' Project paid out-of-work writers to record first-person accounts from former slaves until the project was shut down when funding ran out in 1939. www.loc.gov/collections/slave-narratives-from-the-federal-writers-project-1936-to-1938/
