Guiding Questions How does the account portray slavery? (Be sure to cite specific information from the interview.) How does the account compare to the other two documents?
1.When evaluating historical interviews, historians ask questions about the documents to help them think about whether they are useful for learning about the past. Some of the questions historians might ask about interviews are: Is it reasonable to think that the person interviewed knows about the events they are discussing? Are there any reasons why the interviewee might not be telling the truth or telling whole story, either on purpose or unintentionally? Are there reasons that the interviewer might not be recording the interview accurately or completely, either on purpose or unintentionally? How relevant is the information to the issues or topics that I am interested in learning about? Use these questions to think about the strengths and limitations of the interviews for learning about slavery.
