Incidents in the Life of a Slave Girl Book
By Harriet Ann Jacobs
Incidents in the Life of a Slave Girl: An Autobiographical Account of an Escaped Slave and Abolitionist
There is no better way to experience history than to read the firsthand accounts of those who lived through it. In this harrowing narrative, Harriet Ann Jacobs tells the story of her life in slavery before the Civil War in North Carolina. The New York Times has described Incidents in the Life of a Slave Girl as a "crowning achievement". Encouraged to write her story by Harriet Beecher Stowe, Jacobs' book contributed funds to abolitionist efforts. Take the time to engage with this important autobiography--a testament to the lived history of an escaped slave woman and abolitionist.
