Ophelia Settle Egypt was a social worker and sociologist known for helping former slaves and free blacks discover their freedoms and tell their stories. Setting the stage for the Works Progress Administration that would develop a decade after she made her mark, Egypt would help her Fisk University colleague, Charles Johnson, interview 100 ex-slaves for his 1968 publication, “Unwritten History of Slavery: Autobiographical Accounts of Negro Ex-Slaves.”
