This Modern Library Paperback Classics edition combines the two most important African American slave narratives into one volume.
Frederick Douglass's Narrative, first published in 1845, is an enlightening and incendiary text. Born into slavery, Douglass became the preeminent spokesman for his people during his life; his narrative is an unparalleled account of the dehumanizing effects of slavery and Douglass's own triumph over it. Like Douglass, Harriet Jacobs was born into slavery, and in 1861 she published Incidents in the Life of a Slave Girl, now recognized as the most comprehensive antebellum slave narrative written by a woman. Jacobs's account broke the silence on the exploitation of African American female slaves, and it remains crucial reading. These narratives illuminate and inform each other. This edition includes an incisive Introduction by Kwame Anthony Appiah and extensive annotations.

"From the Trade Paperback edition.

From the Publisher:
The famous biography of the former slave who became an outstanding orator, minister, and abolitionist leader offers an eloquent indictment of America's "peculiar institution" of slavery, exposing the harsh living conditions of slaves throughout the plantations of the antebellum South. Reissue.The autobiography of the famous abolitionist and statesman who escaped to the north after twenty-one years of enslavement.

Praise

New York Tribune (1841-1924)
"Considered merely as narrative, we have never read one more simple, true, coherent and warm with genuine feeling. It is an excellent piece of writing, and on that score to be prized as a specimen of the power of the Black race, which prejudice persists in disputing." - Margaret Fuller
