The Overstory - Richard Powers - A Short Summary and Review

Incidents in the Life of a Slave Girl - Harriet Ann Jacobs - A Short Summary and Review

 


A short summary of Incidents in the Life of a Slave Girl:

The autobiography of Harriet Ann Jacobs, enslaved woman.

My favorite Harriet Ann Jacobs quote from the book:

"Cruelty is contagious in uncivilized communities."


Questions to ponder while reading the book:

Is beauty a curse?

Could you marry a man like that?

My review of Incidents in the Life of a Slave Girl:

A heartbreaking read.

I can't believe how many people participated in this evil.

One of the best books from an enslaved perspective.
