About-

An invaluable collection of vivid conversion narratives and autobiographies by illiterate but powerfully articulate ex-slaves, God Struck Me Dead is a window into the soul of America and its religious history. Gathered from the Fisk Social Science Institute's massive study during the 1930s on race relations, and originally published by the Pilgrim Press in 1969, this volume is a rich resource of liberation from those whose faith was borne and tested by the cruelest of human degradations - slavery. Includes a preface by Paul Radin, author and expert on primal religion.
