MOSES GRANDY LEGACY LIVES©
In June 2020, Mubita LLC adapted the Moses Grandy slave narrative into an audiobook called Moses Grandy Legacy Lives. The audiobook is a great primary source for anyone who wants to learn more about Moses' freedom story and life being enslaved around the Great Dismal Swamp area of NC and VA. Click the link to learn more about the story and how to download it from our website.
The narrative is the story of tragedy, triumph, perseverance, family and entrepreneurship, while exposing the complexity of slavery and race relations in America. This is a must read for all Americans and people globally. Historians have said that Moses Grandy's slave narrative is the only known firsthand written account of how enslaved and freed Africans hand dug the 22-mile long historic Dismal Swamp Canal between North Carolina and Virginia, in the Great Dismal Swamp. The Great Dismal Swamp became a refuge for enslaved people (Maroons) escaping the surrounding plantations. In 2003, the Great Dismal Swamp and Canal were designated as an official Underground Railroad (UGRR) site by the U.S. Department of the Interior National Park Service’s "Network to Freedom" Program.
* Note: If you are an educator in Virginia, New Jersey or Rhode Island, our audiobook can be used as a resource to teach your state-mandated African American history courses.
We hope you enjoy your listening experience. We encourage you to share this website with family, friends and colleagues, so that they can learn more about our collective history. Every person in America and around the world should know the story behind Moses Grandy's enslavement and freedom struggles. Moses' story is OUR story, and we can use Grandy's story so that WE CAN HEAL TOGETHER.
