The Classic Slave Narratives
by Henry Louis Gates, Jr. (Editor), Frederick Douglass, Olaudah Equiano, Harriet Jacobs, Mary Prince
Before the end of the civil war, over one hundred former slaves had written moving stories of their captivity and by 1944, when George Washington Carver published his autobiography, over six thousand ex-slaves had written what are called slave narratives. No group of slaves anywhere, in any other era, has left such prolific testimony to the horror of bondage and servitude.
