SERIES DESCRIPTION: In the 1930s, the federal government saw that the African American Ex-slaves were dying off. The government wanted to document firsthand accounts of slavery. So in 1935, the U.S. Government created the Federal Writers' Project (FWP) to record the oral histories of African American Ex-slaves. Zora Neale Hurston (a well-known female African American poet and author) was appointed the "Supervisor" for the "Negro Unit" of the Florida Division of the FWP. The Negro Unit was located in Jacksonville, Florida, at the Clara White Mission on Ashley Street. Hurston was instrumental in collecting many of the slave narratives. Folklorist and author, William Stetson Kennedy, served as Director of Ethnic Studies for the Florida Project. The Library of Congress American Ex-Slaves' archives gathered by the FWP during the 1930s, include collections of African American superheroes and legends. These superheroes used strength, intelligence, and endurance to accomplish unexpected results.
