Harriet Ann Jacobs – Incidents in the Life of a Slave Girl Written by Herself


One of the first personal narratives written by an ex-slave, this is also one of the few written by a woman. Harriet Jacobs (1813-97) was enslaved, along with her family, in North Carolina under a ruthless master who sexually harassed her. After several failed escape attempts, and several years of hiding, she finally made her way North to freedom, where she was eventually reunited with her children. The book was published in 1861.

First off, the story is incredible in itself and it is very well written. The performance of the narrator is as well. Definitely worth your time!
