Two new slave narratives

The New York Times reveals that two journals of ex-slaves have recently been discovered. One was written by John Washington, and the other by Wallace Turnage. Both men escaped to Union lines during the war. David W. Blight, the Yale historian plans to publish both. Good story of where the mansucripts have been, and how they were discovered.

I’m sort of surprised this NYT story was posted here. In light of the Blair et al scandals, I am truly sorry for questioning the veracity of the reporter’s story, but should we not wonder? Who is "RANDY KENNEDY," anyway? What is his angle? Is he merely another Jayson Blair taking the NYT, and the rest of us, for a joy ride?
