Harriet Jacobs was born a slave in North Carolina in 1813. A bright and creative young lady, she faced tremendous hardship as a female slave. She had the misfortune of becoming the de facto slave of her 5 year old new mistress’s father, who pursued her relentlessly. Her new master’s constant advances became so unbearable that she hid in her mother’s attic for 7 years until she seized an opportunity to escape north!

Incidents in the Life of a Slave Girl is not only a slave narrative, but shows the triumphal nature of the human spirit. Harriet Jacob shares her story with dignity and grace. This is a work that will be around for centuries to come.
