Not only one of the last of over one hundred slave narratives published separately before the Civil War, Incidents in the Life of a Slave Girl (1861) is also one of the few existing narratives written by a woman.

Slavery from a woman's point of view. Should be required reading with Douglass' narrative. ( )
  OutOfTheBestBooks | Sep 24, 2021 |
This was a nonfiction book which I couldn't put down. A gripping story not only of survival, but of a woman determined not to let her personhood be taken from her or her children. She explains very clearly how the act of slavery demeans the slave's physical and spiritual moral, but it also degrades the slaver. She goes a long way to explain the current issues of race we are still struggling with in the United States. It is a long reaching sin. Its tentacles reached up into the northern states as they passed laws complying with the southern states, allowing slaves to be sent back to their masters. That act then removed the African-Americans from the category of personhood in their minds. She makes it clear; it wasn't enough to not be a slaveholder, all of those who didn't cry out against the evil were guilty of supporting it.

This book made me think. What atrocities against others am I complying with in the world today? Complying by my silence? By my lack of involvement? By my not wanting to hear them. What side will my name be listed on in future generations? ( )

So poignant and under-rated. Told in a writing style similar to other female Victorian novelists. ( )

Am listenting to the free Audiobook from an itunes app. You know the ones that state at the begininning of each chapter "This is a Libravox Audio book, Librvox is a part of the public domain" or some such business.

I have this book in Amazon Kindle format in my library as well. I was checking it against what I have listened to and it seems to be a whole other book. So I have two different Goodreads listings for it. I plan on reading the book as well as listening to it. Right now I am on chapter 12 in the audio version.

I read this book almost 20 years ago. I remember feeling like her experiences were almost fantastical. Surely the horrors of slavery shared so matter of factly must be an exaggeration. Yet my studies of the peculiar institution have borne out the truth in this narrative, as has extensive historical research into the life of Harriet Jacob's and her family and enslaver.
Harriet Jacob's memoir is extremely readable. It's clearly written in the language of the period, the violence while horrifying somehow feels less real than fictional slave narratives written in more direct and current language for me. Still I find myself unwilling to put the book down though I'm quite familiar with her story.
The horrors of slavery are not short sold in this book. Most especially the uniquely horrifying lot of the female slave. I find myself deeply impressed with Harriet's courage, tenacity, and self esteem. ( )

Northerners know nothing at all about Slavery. They think it is perpetual bondage only. They have no conception of the depth of degradation involved in that word, Slavery; if they had, they would never cease their efforts until so horrible a system was overthrown. -A Woman of North Carolina

Rise up, ye women that are at ease! Hear my voice, ye careless daughters! Give ear unto my speech. -Isaiah xxxii.9
