Stumbled on a great documentary last night, Unchained Memories: Readings from the Slave Narratives on HBO. Excellent, sparse readings done by prominent black actors (aww, Ossie Davis, miss you!) and actresses interspersed with pictures and footage of the slaves themselves. Not too melodramatic or histrionic, just letting the accounts speak for themselves relatively unembellished. Check it out.
