Interpeter talks about the lives of Brattonsville slaves

I have so much respect for her and what she’s doing.  Slavery isn’t something to be ashamed of because it is part of America’s history.  I took the opportunity, like Moore, to be a slave interpreter for a living history program called Imaginative Journeys by Dr. Annette Laing.

Let me tell you, it was an experience.

I’m the one on the left.  The expression on my face is part it’s hot and most old photos of slaves seldom show them smiling.  I thought I would be true to that idea.
