Part 1 Hear Former Slaves Speak

You can hear the speaker say,

marsta, mississ, chillun, gwine, cotched, full (as a verb), wear (someone)
out = "give (someone) a beating," etc.

Otherwise, IMO, the speaker could be any random black speaker of 2015

All say, "How hard it is that we have to die!"---a strange complaint to
come from the mouths of people who have had to live.
