Augmented Reality Immersive Photography

The Born in Slavery: Slave Narratives from the Federal Writers’ Project, 1936-1938 contains more than 2,300 first-person accounts of slavery and 500 black-and-white photographs of former slaves.  These narratives were collected in the 1930s as part of the Federal Writers’ Project of the Works Progress Administration, later renamed Work Projects Administration.  

At the conclusion of the Slave Narrative project, a set of edited transcripts was assembled and microfilmed in 1941 as the seventeen-volume Slave Narratives: A Folk History of Slavery in the United States from Interviews with Former Slaves.

To advocate the need for assisting Black American Genealogy repair, George has chosen to base Phase II “Champion” of The Black Book Projects on the approach of the Born in Slavery: Slave Narratives from the Federal Writers’ Project of 1936, to create a volume series of Enslaved African American Descendant Narratives.  

The first volumes of written and visual Narrative assets will be used to create create recorded YouTube channel episodes, Augmented Reality Photography Public Installations, and a hardcover Photomentary Narrative book.

All Genealogy information is gained using extant documentation, public records, or Family Recall Information.  The identities of living individuals is not shared publicly and are displayed as private in any public online service.
