In honor of Black History Month, this February we are releasing a special four-part series that highlights African American experiences in Southern Appalachia. Our second week features excerpts from interviews conducted in 1977 and 1981 with Carrie Stewart, of Franklin, North Carolina. Carrie was born in 1878, and shares stories of slavery passed to her through her grandparents and father. To read the rest of Carrie's story, pick up a copy of Foxfire 8.
