About this title


Set against the background of the antebellum slave trade, Drums and Shadows traces the persistence of African heritage in the culture of blacks living on the Georgia coast in the 1930s. Members of the Georgia Writers' Project interviewed blacks about conjure―the curses and potions―and about dreams, spirits, and other apparitions.

About the Author:

This study of African survivals was conducted by the Savannah unit of the Georgia Writers' Project, under the direction of Mary Granger, the district supervisor. Muriel and Malcolm Bell, Jr., are natives of Savannah. Charles Joyner, the author ofDown by the Riverside: A South Carolina Slave Community and editor of several collections of sea island black folk tales and songs, is Burroughs Distinguished Professor of Southern History at Coastal Carolina University.
