African Americans at Mars Bluff, South Carolina

Amelia Wallace Vernon was reared in Mars Bluff, a small farming community in South Carolina's pine belt. Though she moved away from the town early in her adult life, on her annual visits home she became increasingly interested in exploring and preserving the history of its African-American community. Over a period of years, she taped interviews with elderly members, who shared a trove of information about their lives and those of their ancestors. Allowing the story to unfold largely through the words of her subjects, Vernon has fashioned a fascinating history of the African Americans who lived in Mars Bluff from the mid-eighteenth century to the mid-twentieth-century.
