The Runaway Slave blog is a “collection of African American slave names that were printed in west Tennessee newspapers before 1865. These men, women and children were advertised as runaway slaves or listed as property for sale. All material on this website is transcribed from microfilm as faithfully as possible; however, errors may occur. The original sources are available at the Memphis & Shelby County Public Library.”
