Summary
Photocopy of a microfilmed copy of a typescript of an interview. Glenn was interviewed by T. Pat Matthews in 1937 as part of the Federal Writer's Project for the Works Progress Administration. The item includes handwritten corrections. Glenn gives a detailed account of how, at the age of 8 years, his master sold him away from his parents. His new master then took him to Kentucky, where his master's son taught him to read and write. After emancipation, he worked and saved his money until he was reunited with his family. He says of the reunion with his partents, "those who were torn apart in bondage and sorrow ... were now united in freedom and happiness."
