Short Stories for Colored People Both Old and Young by Silas X. Floyd (1869 - 1923).
Several short stories relating to young African Americans ( kirk202)
  1. Text source (only read from this text!): http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/60780
  2. Type of proof-listening required (Note: please read the PL FAQ): standard

    IMPORTANT - soloist, please note: in order to limit the amount of languishing projects (and hence the amount of files on our hard-pressed server), we ask that you post an update at least once a month in your project thread, even if you haven't managed to record anything. If we don't hear from you for three months, your project may be opened up to a group project if a Book Coordinator is found. Files you have completed will be used in this project. If you haven't recorded anything yet, your project will be removed from the forum (contact any admin to see if it can be re-instated).

    Please don't download or listen to files belonging to projects in process (unless you are the BC or PL). Our servers are not set up to handle the greater volume of traffic. Please wait until the project has been completed. Thanks!

  3. The reader will record the following at the beginning and end of each file:
    No more than 0.5 to 1 second of silence at the beginning of the recording!
    START of recording (Intro):
    • "Chapter [number] of Short Stories for Colored People Both Old and Young (Silas X. Floyd). This is a LibriVox recording. All LibriVox recordings are in the public domain. For more information, or to volunteer, please visit: librivox DOT org"
    • If you wish, say:

    • Say:
      "Short Stories for Colored People Both Old and Young (Silas X. Floyd), by Silas X. Floyd. [Chapter]"

    .
    For the second and all subsequent sections, you may optionally use the shortened form of this intro disclaimer:
    • "Chapter [number] of Short Stories for Colored People Both Old and Young (Silas X. Floyd) by Silas X. Floyd. This LibriVox recording is in the Public Domain."
    • If you wish, say:
      "Recording by [your name], [city, your blog, podcast, web address]"
    • Only if applicable, say:
      "[Chapter title]"
    .
    END of recording:
    • At the end of the section, say:
      "End of [Chapter]"
    • If you wish, say:
      "Recording by [your name], [city, your blog, podcast, web address]"
      .
    • At the end of the book, say (in addition):
      "End of Short Stories for Colored People Both Old and Young (Silas X. Floyd), by Silas X. Floyd. "

    There should be ~5 seconds silence at the end of the recording.
    .
  4. Example filename shortstories_##_floyd_128kb.mp3 (all lower-case) where ## is the section number (e.g. shortstories_01_floyd_128kb.mp3)

I read a couple of these when I was checking the PD status ... The little boy who wanted to trade his baby brother in for a pony ... well, maybe they could trade him for a goat ... that made me laugh! And terrific pictures throughout the book to illustrate the stories. This is a gem.
