Slave Narrative Set in the Great Dismal Swamp Now Available on Audiobook: Moses Grandy’s Life

Upon visiting the site I am impressed by its design. It is not cluttered or busy and the layout lends itself to the subject at hand in a manner that signals the gravity of the content contained. A difficult balance for projects dealing with traumatic records.
Very nicely done.
