Incidents in the Life of a Slave Girl, Written by Herself

Harriet Jacobs

The atrocious but true story of slavery in the United States until the Civil War.

The stunned listener also gets to know of the mistreatment of the other slaves. We hear how slavery as practiced by the South was degrading to both blacks and whites. It shows the hypocrisy of many white Christians, who could sleep with their female slaves one day, and still see themselves as good Christians the next...
