"Not Today" is a project that aims to highlight the nature of black resistance to chattel slavery in the American South while bringing attention to the value and presence of the collection of slave narratives online at the Documenting the American South project hosted by the University of North Carolina - Chapel Hill.

In each video below I will read one of my favorite stories from a particular slave narrative and post a link to the entire document for people who would like to read more.
