Incidents in the Life of a Slave Girl


I know this woman is a hero for speaking out and telling her life story but it’s going to be difficult to read. By page twenty-two my stomach is already in knots and my heart is wrenched with pain. There are however, bright spots,  dim as they may be. I will never be able to imagine how someone in this kind of position could have ever had a glass half full attitude about life and the future. Harriet Jacobs is a hero even if she doesn’t think so. More later, maybe.
