Today, James Island is a bustling community seven miles west of Charleston, South Carolina. But the island's past was not always as sunny. Beginning in the eighteenth century, James Island was the destination for hundreds of slaves who were tortured with unimaginable hardships while crossing the Atlantic Ocean. In James Island: Stories From Slave Descendants, Eugene Frazier, Sr. compiles narrative interviews with slaves, slave descendents, and descendents of plantation owners. The stories he gathered give us a singular perspective on the lives of African Americans from 1732-1950, following the James Island community from more than 130 years of slavery to decades of sharecropping and farming while slavery's long shadow survived in segregation. An excellent resource for historians, teachers or those interested in the journey from slavery to integration, James Island: Stories From Slave Descendants will be an enlightening and meaningful addition to any library.

James Island remains one of the few places in the United States where descendants of slaves can easily trace their roots to one of the seventeen slave plantations. For many African Americans, it is hard to imagine how far this small island has come. It has left them with a legacy of both the joy and the pain of living in a time and place wrought with hardship but somehow still intermingled with the happiness that comes from a community built on family, love, strength and honor. In this powerful collection, local resident and oral historian Eugene Frazier chronicles the stories of various James Island families and their descendants. Frazier has spent years collecting family and archival photographs and family remembrances to accompany the text. This book also pays homage to men and women of the United States military and African American pioneers from James Island and surrounding areas.

On April 12, 1861, Confederate forces at Fort Johnson fired upon Federal-occupied Fort Sumter in Charleston Harbor, etching James Island's name in American history as the starting place of the War Between the States. The island was a battleground for war skirmishes, live oak-laden property that housed antebellum plantations, fertile soil that yielded sea island cotton, precious land that enslaved so many, and a rural planting community existing in the shadow of Charleston. More than this, though, James Island was and is a beloved home to generations of proud families and individuals. This South Carolina sea island, which once flourished and folded under the bondage of slavery, is now a place where all races live and celebrate its rich heritage. The Gullah culture and language thrive and are treasured here, as are the Southern traditions of the original planters and their descendants.
