    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.

    This is the story of Harriet Ann Jacobs, a story of slavery in the 19th century, a story of terrible human suffering, and a story that, later on, played a significant role in the abolitionist movement. 19th-century Harriet represents many other slave women who need to be free like Harriet finally was. Hence, Harriet's story has been brought here as the second volume of Absurd's Slave Narrative series as a wake-up call to save the victims of slavery and to save the mankind.
