I can personally vouch for the first two of these books.  

Slaves in the Family is a fascinating account of author Edward Ball's tracking of the descendants of the slaves his SC ancestors had owned long ago...including some who turned out to be related by blood as well as history.

Freedom's Child is a wonderful tribute by Carrie Allen McCray to her mother, who was the daughter of a Confederate general and a black domestic servant, and who became a teacher and a pioneer in the Civil Rights movement. She deals bravely and honestly with the ticklish issue of accepting that hers is a bittersweet heritage, and her loving and vivid descriptions of life in "the olden days" take you back in time.   It's a real treat!  Read the editorial reviews...
